President Barack Obama is inviting members of Congress to the White House for a June 8 meething to highlight immigration reform, an administration official confirmed to POLITICO Wednesday.

"The meeting will be an opportunity to launch a policy conversation that we hope will be able to start a debate that will take place in Congress later in the year," the official, who asked not to be named, said.

Asked if the session would be billed as a summit or a forum, like similar meetings on health care and fiscal responsibility earlier in the year, another official said, "This isnít a forum or a summit with outside groups, this is solely a meeting with members of Congress on both sides of the aisle and both sides of the issue."

Hmm, I wonder what new proposals Obama will considering for the upcoming shamnesty bill.

He's definitely chose a fantastic time for it.

It sounds like he's simply going to meet with all of the members of both parties to test the waters. I seriously doubt that it will be a mainline issue this year or anytime in the near future. As long as the economy remains in the toilet, amnesty will begin and end with a series of discussions. Additionally, he's planning a run for 2012 so it may not happen until after the next presidential election cycle.

Do they broadcast these meetings? or post some kind of minutes? Or are they closed doors and noone gets to know what each are saying?
