A comprehensive immigration reform is high on priority of US President Barack Obama during his second term in office, the White House has said.
"I would say, broadly speaking, that State of the Union addresses tend to include at least a sample of President's agenda, and comprehensive immigration reform, is a very high priority of the President," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said.
He said Obama has given commitment to take action on immigration reform early in his second term.
"I can assure you that it is a top priority of this President, and it is something he will act on, as he has promised," he said.
Soon after his electoral victory in November, Obama, at a White House news conference, had said he was "very confident" that he could get immigration reform done.
