Obama to speak in Nashville on immigration

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - President Barack Obama is traveling to Nashville to speak about his executive actions on immigration.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest announced the visit during a Thursday press briefing, saying that Nashville is a city that has "actively worked to welcome new Americans." Earnest said the city's actions are paying off and noted that Nashville has been a leader in job growth in the South.

The president last month announced sweeping changes to the U.S. immigration system could shield 4 million people here illegally from deportation. Opponents of the move have vowed to try to stop the executive action, which they consider unconstitutional.

Obama will speak on Tuesday at Casa Azafran, a community center and office space housing nonprofit groups that serve the city's immigrants.
