Immigration reformers ask Obama for time

A growing chorus of immigration groups is sending the same message to President Barack Obama: No executive action until August at the earliest to allow Congress time to act.
The coalition of influential advocacy organizations – spanning religious groups to labor – issued a statement Tuesday that urged the House Republican leadership to act on immigration during a “real window of opportunity” from now until August. During that time, Obama should hold off on announcing any changes to how his administration enforces immigration laws, the groups said.
