Obama to press for immigration overhaul on Spanish TV

A day after urging Congress to move forward on an immigration overhaul, President Obama will make his case in a pair of Spanish language TV interviews.

Obama is scheduled for interviews at the White House today with Jose Diaz Balart of Telemundo and Maria Elena Salinas of Univision.

Obama's new political arm, Organizing for Action, is already taking up the charge, asking supporters to register their support. In an email, the group's chair, Jim Messina, notes that a Senate plan is "consistent with the plan the President campaigned on" and is an "encouraging sign for working together in the months ahead."

But, he suggests, "there are sure to be disagreements and bumps in the road. It won't be easy, and our success is in no way guaranteed."
