WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden has visited a tent on the National Mall to show his support for immigration activists on the 11th day of a hunger strike.
In video released by the Service Employees International Union, Biden tells activists, quote, "We are going to win this."
The White House says Biden prayed with the activists for immigration legislation.
The group organizing the fast, Fast for Families, wants the House to vote on an immigration overhaul that's already passed the Senate.
Biden and President Barack Obama have sought to keep a spotlight on that bill and the need to fix immigration laws. They're hoping to keep alive an issue that's stalled since House Republicans refused to take up the bipartisan Senate deal, preferring their own, piecemeal approach.
