Local task force praises president's immigration plan

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – The North County Immigration Task Force gathered Friday to show support for President Obama's plan to take executive action on immigration.

The task force is comprised of community members and leaders from several different faiths.

At a news conference Friday, the group said Obama's actions reaffirm the United States' reputation as the land of opportunity.

"President Obama's action is the moral thing to do. It is the just thing to do. It is the right thing to do," Reverend Sharon Wylie said.

The San Diego Republican Party is opposed to President Obama's plan. The group says the president is overstepping his powers, that it is up to Congress and the American people to make laws, not the president.
