From the Dan Stein Report:

President Obama added a late meeting this afternoon, a closed-to-the-media session of what the White House described as "grass-roots leaders" discussing "comprehensive immigration reform."

The meeting takes place amid anticipation that Obama's Justice Department will soon file a lawsuit against the controversial Arizona law that gives law enforcement officers authority to ask residents about their citizenship.

Gov. Phil Bredesen signed an Arizona-style enforcement bill into law Monday. The measure requires police to check with ICE if they cannot verify the citizenship status of people arrested. "I believe there has been significant political posturing on this issue," Bredesen said. "While I do have concerns about this legislation, this bill seeks to set up a verification process similar to what exists in our state's major cities, and I have been supportive of these efforts."
