May 5 - U.S. President Barack Obama celebrates Cinco de Mayo at the White House, calling for comprehensive immigration reform. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Barack Obama called for comprehensive immigration reform as he marked Cinco de Mayo at the White House. Last year, the Senate last year passed a sweeping measure that included a path to citizenship for certain undocumented immigrants. But some House conservatives oppose that measure, which they view as amnesty for lawbreakers. Speaker of the House John Boehner has repeatedly dismissed the idea of passing the Senate version of the immigration bill in the House but has said that his chamber could consider a measure of its own. Some House Republicans have suggested the possibility of legalizing some undocumented residents instead of establishing a specific pathway to citizenship.
