Obama invites Indian American community leaders for dialogue
Bhargava from the Centre for Community Change and Deepa Iyer from the South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT), are among the 16 and labour leaders invited by the US President from across the nation for a dialogue with them at the White House today.
This is part of the President's effort to "continue his dialogue with outside leaders on a number of issues including immigration reform and how it fits into his broader economic agenda, and his efforts to achieve balanced deficit reduction," the White House said.
The White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters here that on immigration reform, Obama and his team will continue to highlight the importance of comprehensive immigration reform this week.
They will meet with key stakeholders, CEOs and law enforcement officials to discuss the benefits from an economic and a security perspective while also underscoring the
historic progress that has been made when it comes to securing the nation's borders, Carney said.
"On Tuesday, the President will hold meetings at the White House with labour leaders and progressive leaders as well as, separately, a number of CEOs from across industries to discuss his commitment to getting a bipartisan bill passed in 2013 and how immigration reform fits within his broader agenda for economic growth and competitiveness," he said.
