Obama: Immigration Reform Bill Could Be Delayed

April 29, 2010
Headlines

President Obama, meanwhile, has suggested he may delay a push for immigration reform until next year. Obama spoke to reporters Wednesday aboard Air Force One.

President Obama: "We’ve gone through a very tough year, and I’ve been working Congress pretty hard. So I know there may not be an appetite immediately to dive into another controversial issue. There’s still work that has to be done on energy. Mid-terms are coming up. So, I don’t want us to do something just for the sake of politics that doesn’t solve the problem."
