Obama pushes for immigration reform, two Southland projects
COSTA MESA--Barak Obama is winding up his first visit to California as president.

Mr. Obama visited an electric vehicle battery plant in Pomona, held a townhall-style meeting Los Angeles and made an appearance on the “Tonight” show.

Earlier in Costa Mesa, he opposed amnesty for illegal immigrants. But, he declared there are options.

“If they stay in the shadows in the underground economy, they are oftentimes pitted against American workers since they can’t join a union. They can’t complain about minimum wages.”

He called for comprehensive immigration reform and a path to citizenship that would include “significant fines” because they came here illegally.

And, President Obama announced two federally-funded projects: an extra lane for the 91 Freeway and a new hospital for Camp Pendleton.
