Immigration on the front burner

(NBC News)  President Obama will welcome immigrant soldiers, reservists and their spouses at a naturalization ceremony at the White House later today.

The ceremony comes as the president is being pressed to deal with the 52,000 immigrant children who’ve come here on their own.

The government is spending a million dollars on a new ad campaign in Central America, warning parents it’s dangerous to send kids to the United States alone.

So far this year 220 people have been found dead trying to cross the border.

That ad campaign targeting parents isn’t just airing in Central America. It’s also airing in major U.S. cities, hoping immigrants will send the message back home.
