Obama pledges to make immigration reform a top priority, McCain scheduled to appear today

In what has become quite frequent in the past few weeks. Obama and McCain are both addressing large crowds of Latinos at National Council of La Raza Convention….

Sen. Barack Obama promised yesterday that he would make overhauling immigration policy a top priority of his first year in office if he is elected president as he chided Republican John McCain for backing away from his own comprehensive immigration bill.

“I think it’s time for a president who won’t walk away from something as important as comprehensive reform just because it becomes politically unpopular,” the Illinois Democrat said. “I will make it a top priority in my first year as the president of the United States of America.”

John McCain will address the group  this afternoon.
