Biden to Hispanics: Obama Will Act on Immigration

Stacy A. Anderson, AP, September 22, 2014

Vice President Joe Biden told frustrated Hispanic leaders Monday President Barack Obama is “absolutely committed to moving forward” on comprehensive immigration reforms “and he’s going to do an awful lot.”

Biden said Obama was determined to move ahead “with or without” Congress and “if they don’t get something done by the end of this year, the president’s going to do it.”

Biden’s remarks came as he and his wife, Jill, hosted a Hispanic Heritage Month reception Monday at their Naval Observatory residence.


He said the “brilliance and potential of the Hispanic community” will contribute to the future of the country, noting that one in four students in pre-K through 12th grade are Hispanic.
