If Congress doesn't act on immigration, will push own plan: Obama
LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that if Congress is unable to act in a timely fashion on changing immigration laws, he will propose legislation of his own and demand lawmakers vote on it.
Pledging swift action, Obama said in a speech that Washington should have the resolve to "finally put this issue behind us."
