Obama Immigration Meeting Heavy on Labor, Progressive Partisans

President Barack Obama met Tuesday with the usual suspects of left-wing advocacy groups to discuss immigration. The White House calls them "progressive and labor leaders" and "business leaders."

The White House described the summit this way:

In the afternoon, the President will 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 President will host two separate meetings at the White House, one with progressive and labor leaders and the other with business leaders. These meetings in the Roosevelt Room are closed press.
