Obama expects immigration reform by the end of the year

President Obama told a Spanish language television network that he expects immigration reform to be in place before the end of this year.

Maria Elena Salinas of Univision -- one of two Spanish language anchors to interview Obama at the White House today -- tweeted the bit this afternoon. The entire interview is embargoed until 6:30 p.m.

Univision noted in its promo of the interview that it was during the debate it sponsored last September that Obama declared that the biggest failure of his first term was his failure to achieve the immigration overhaul he had promised in his first campaign.

Salinas said Obama also told her that he believes Congress can tackle immigration and gun control at the same time.
