Obama Urges Republican-Led House to Pass Immigration Overhaul


President Barack Obama stepped into the fray in the U.S. Congress over immigration on Saturday , urging Americans to press the Republican-led House of Representatives to approve a plan that is at risk of stalling. Obama used his weekly address to make his case for an immigration overhaul that was approved by the Democratic-controlled Senate and would create a pathway to citizenship for as many as 11 million people living illegally in the United States.
