President Obama is holding a closed-door White House meeting with “immigration advocacy leaders” this morning, the White House announced. Later today the president will hold an immigration townhall in Miami, which will be broadcast on MSNBC.
“In the morning, the President will meet with immigration advocacy leaders to provide an update on the Administration’s immigration accountability executive actions. This meeting in the Roosevelt Room is closed press,” the White House schedule reads.

It is unclear who will be in attendance at the private meeting.
The meeting comes amid a fight between the White House and Congress about Department of Homeland Security funding — and whether the executive amnesty he signed last year should receive federal money to support the action.
The president will be in Miami for about 3 hours. His only scheduled event there later today is the town hall event.
