President Obama spoke at the Betty Ann Ong Chinese Recreation Center in San Francisco. He urged Congress to pass immigration reform. He said he is open to the House of Representatives passing piecemeal bills rather than the comprehensive legislation already passed by the Senate. In his remarks he mentioned a recent meeting with business leaders, saying that although he knows many did not vote for him, they agreed with him that immigration should be a top priority. At the beginning of his speech he briefly addressed the agreement the U.S. and five other global powers (P5+1) reached with Iran on a six-month test freeze of the country’s nuclear program.
The speech was disrupted by hecklers who urged the president to halt his administration’s record of deportations. close
