The re-elected President Obama will be in Minneapolis. The specifics of the trip have yet to be released and will become available. A White House official confirmed the upcoming trip with no leads as to what will take place.
Since the inauguration, the Obama administration has lots of pending legislation on their plate. Amidst a contentious debate over Gun Control its possible this may be one of the reasons, according to a Minnesota CBS Local report.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune and Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) both confirmed the upcoming visit to the Land of 10,000 Lakes. The president’s last visit was back in June 1, 2012 when he visited the Honeywell plant in Golden Valley, Minn.
In Minnesota the president has strong support from Gov. Mark Dayton, Sen. Al Franken, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, U.S Representative Keith Ellison, and Minneapolis Mayor R. T. Rybak. If there is any indications of what is to come contact any of these government officials.
The other possibility for the president’s visit is to recap his proposal for Immigration Reform. Today the President embraced the bipartisan legislation introduced days before his announcement with some differences.
According to the New York Times the bipartisan proposal the core of the immigration overhaul is the following:
“The four pillars in the bipartisan proposal – border security, employer enforcement, provisions for granting entry to farm workers and highly skilled engineers, and the pathway to citizenship – mirror the main components of Mr. Obama’s blueprint.”
“President Obama’s immigration-reform proposal today pulls everyone who can contribute to our success out the shadows and gives them a chance to work and to play by the same rules as everybody else. His plan lays the essential groundwork for our economic success and the future of the American Dream, not only in Minneapolis but in every corner of our country,”Rybak added.
There is lots of speculation over his visit. The rumors will continue to swirl around the web until official announcements are made.
