President Barack Obama to Visit Copernicus Center in Chicago to Discuss Immigration with Community Leaders


President Barack Obama is scheduled to arrive in Chicago to discuss his executive order that could extend legal protection to as many as 5 million immigrants who are currently living in the U.S. illegally.

During the visit, President Barack Obama will meet with community leaders to discuss actions he’s taking to fix the “broken immigration system” according to the White House.

White House officials say Obama will stop at the Copernicus Community Center on Tuesday, November 25, 2014 — four days after his directive. The Copernicus Center, a Polish cultural center at 5215 West Lawrence Avenue, is home to numerous cultural and music events, including an annual Polish festival — Taste of Polonia. The Chicago area has one of the largest concentrations of people of Polish descent outside of Poland.
