Obama meeting with Hispanic Caucus on immigration

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is meeting at the White House with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus as he seeks additional authority to more quickly turn back young Central American border crossers. Obama's meeting Wednesday comes as he faces stiff resistance from some members of his Democratic Party to measures that could create shortcuts around the immigration court system. A memorandum from the Hispanic Caucus ahead of the meeting said members will address, quote, "the need to ensure due process protections for children are not rolled back."
