White House Said to Expect Immigration Plan in April

The White House anticipates senators drafting immigration legislation will miss their March target date and unveil the bill in April after a two-week congressional break, officials told faith leaders who met with President Barack Obama yesterday.

“They told us it will be after recess,” said Stephan Bauman, the president of World Relief, the humanitarian arm of the National Association of Evangelicals, who attended the 90-minute session with Obama. Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to Obama, told the group the bill could be ready for a Senate vote in May, or “early June at the far-latest,” he said.
