Washington, DC—The National Council of La Raza (NCLR)—the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States—welcomed today’s report in the New York Times that President Barack Obama has made immigration reform one of his top priorities for this year.

Here’s a link to the NYT story. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/09/us/politics/09immig.html

So is President Obama the hardest working man to occupy the White House? I’m just saying, dude has got some hustle. I’m glad to see him following up on this pledge to engage on immigration. Obviously, he has a political/demographic interest in keeping the ball moving, considering the growing influence of Latino residents and voters in the country.
