Obama to meet with House GOP lawmaker on immigration

WASHINGTON — A House Republican working on immigration legislation is heading to the White House for a meeting with President Barack Obama.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida is slated to meet with the president on Tuesday. The congressman mentioned the session in an interview with Florida radio station WGCU and his office confirmed the meeting.

Immigration legislation has stalled in the House months after the Senate passed a comprehensive bill that would provide a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living here illegally and tighten border security. Most House Republicans reject a comprehensive approach, and many question offering citizenship to people who broke U.S. immigration laws to be in this country.

Diaz-Balart has been working on a bill that would help immigrants here illegally to “get right with the law.”
