Obama is having lunch at Shake Shack
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, charged by President Barack Obama with reviewing U.S. policies on deportation, said on Tuesday he would not let political considerations constrain him from making improvements to the system.
Johnson’s department is considering changes to policies that determine how illegal immigrants are selected for removal from the United States.
Obama says he is not “hell bent” on getting everything from the Senate bill on immigration into a final version that hits his desk.
Obama’s decision on U.S. deportations poses political risks
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Uruguay President Jose Mujica, meeting at the White House with President Barack Obama, on Monday urged the United States to become bilingual, joking that immigrants from Latin America would fill the country with Spanish speakers.
“We belong to a continent where our mother tongue is more or less Spanish. And we live in a time where we need to learn English,” the leftist Mujica, dressed in a suit but no tie, said to Obama.
