White House Pushes Immigration Reform By Highlighting Own Staffers (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A day after the immigration reform bill passed its first crucial hurdle, the White House released a video highlighting the personal stories of some of its own staff members and their path to immigration.

The video, titled "White House Staff: Our American Stories," opens with text reading, "The White House, like all offices, is full of stories that started abroad."

President Barack Obama endorsed the bipartisan push for the immigration reform bill on Tuesday before it reached the Senate floor.

"If you're serious about actually fixing the system, then this is the vehicle to do it," Obama said.

With a vote of 82 to 15, the bill advanced into debate.
