AP source: Immigration a topic at White House

The White House plans to host a discussion on immigration on Thursday with advocates, faith-based groups, businesses and law enforcement officials.

An administration official says that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will lead the discussion. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting is not public.

Last week President Barack Obama said immigration reform is important but that other priorities such as his health care overhaul and financial regulation are going to come first.

Obama said he expects to see draft legislation for an immigration overhaul by the end of the year, with changing the system waiting until next year.
