WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama confronted the country’s raging immigration debate in a meeting with Arizona’s conservative Republican governor, who says she gave no ground on the explosive political issue.
She called Thursday’s 30-minute White House meeting “very cordial.” Obama said it was “good.” But there was nothing in the comments of either the president or Gov. Jan Brewer to suggest they had done anything more than agree to disagree and keep the dialogue open.
With polls showing nearly six in 10 Americans backing the Arizona law, the immigration issue weighs heavily not only on Obama but also on fellow Democrats in Congress.
They were already expected to suffer significant losses in November elections. Some analysts say Democratic majorities in both the House of Representatives and the Senate are in danger.
