President Barack Obama met with members of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus at the White House Tuesday.
It comes weeks after he met with the black and Hispanic caucuses.
Obama stressed that the need to rewrite the nation's immigration law.
"He thanked CAPAC for their ongoing efforts on this important issue and both sides agreed on the need to pass immigration reform now to help grow the economy, create jobs and reduce the deficit," according to the White House. "The President urged CAPAC to continue to reach out to their colleagues in the House to find consensus and complete work on this important issue at the earliest possible opportunity."
Obama told the group that he was proud of his efforts to make the executive branch and the federal judiciary more diverse though in the past some members have critical of a Cabinet that only includes one Asian American.
