Immigrant activists turn up heat on Democrats

WASHINGTON (AP) — Immigrant youth activists are pressuring leading Senate Democrats to call on President Barack Obama to halt deportations — even as Obama tries to keep the focus on the House GOP.

The activism by United We Dream highlights a split among Democrats and immigration advocates. Some are pushing for immediate executive action by Obama, while others say the president should hold off until later in the summer to give House Republicans every opportunity to pass an immigration overhaul bill.

The divide has emerged near the one-year anniversary of Senate passage of a bipartisan immigration bill that has gone nowhere in the House. Advocates have increasingly turned their attention to administrative relief. On Tuesday, youth activists began calling out Democratic senators they say haven’t been outspoken enough in favor of that position.
