President Obama is scheduled to speak Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 25, at the Copernicus Center, 5216 W. Lawrence Ave. A limited number of tickets for the event were set to be distributed in the lobby of the center starting at 10 am Sunday, Nov. 23. The White House released the following statement: On Tuesday, November 25, the President will travel to the Copernicus Community Center in Chicago, Illinois to meet with community leaders and discuss the executive actions he is taking to fix our broken immigration system.
As the President said on Thursday, his Immigration Accountability Executive actions will help secure the border, hold nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants accountable and ensure that everyone plays by the same rules. They will also continue our commitment as Americans to an ideal– that all of us are created equal, and all of us have the chance to make of our lives what we will.
The President looks forward to speaking to a diverse group of leaders on Tuesday, and to continuing to discuss his actions with communities and Americans across the country.
