Call in to speak with the host
'I'M NOT A KING'-Obama gave interviews to two Spanish-language outlets, Univision and Telemundo, on Wednesday, the day after he delivered a major speech on immigration reform. He argued that much of the legislative work on the issue is already done, given years of work by a number of members of Congress and his own administration. Now, the struggle is about convincing lawmakers to sign on, he told Telemundo's José Díaz-Balart.Asked whether deportations would keep coming, Obama said, "
That may be a moot question, because I anticipate us being able to get comprehensive immigration reform done," adding that he would change the law unilaterally if he could.Speaking to Univision in a separate interview, Obama said he cannot stop deportations. "I'm not a king," he told anchor Maria Elena Salinas.
