OBAMA SETS DATE FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM WHITE HOUSE "CONVERSATION"

Rate this Entry

President Obama recently mentioned plans for holding a White House meeting to discuss proceeding with immigration reform legislation. And now he is keeping that promise by setting June 8th, just three weeks from now, to hold the meeting.

According to Politico:

"The meeting will be an opportunity to launch a policy conversation
that we hope will be able to start a debate that will take place in
Congress later in the year," the official, who asked not to be named,
said.


Asked if the session would be billed as a summit or a forum, like
similar meetings on health care and fiscal responsibility earlier in
the year, another official said, "This isn't a forum or a summit with
outside groups, this is solely a meeting with members of Congress on
both sides of the aisle and both sides of the issue."


Another aide said about possible labels for the meeting: "I don't know that we're going to brand this in any particular way."

    Hi Greg

    Just saw the website of OH Law firm and happy to note that
    the Nurse Bill has finally been reintroduced as you were mentioning. Long way to go. However, will appreciate a blog from you on your thoughts and chances of bill passing through
    and little details about the cosponsors. Thanks

    Cuts in education including nursing education as a result of massive cuts in state budgets due to recession will lead to even more nursing shortage and force the congress's hands. These cuts in education spending including spending on nurses education is beyond Obama's control as most of the education is at the state level. Either congress raises the nursing visa limits or the health care industry including the unions will face lawsuits as a result of fatatlities that will occur due to the shortage of nurses. The antis are now keeping quiet about educating Americans...they will be back when the congress increases nursing quotas.
