WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is meeting with Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Thursday. Illegal immigration will be on the agenda.
In the evening, Obama will speak at a reception for the Indian delegation to the United States-India Strategic Dialogue.
That group will hold its first meeting at the State Department during the day. The president wants to further a strategic partnership with India.
Anger over Obama's meeting with Ariz. governor
President Obama's planned meeting Thursday with Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is angering opponents of Arizona's new immigration law.
They say the law, which Brewer signed, is discriminatory. They also think Obama's leadership on immigration reform has been "halfhearted."
Obama and Brewer are to meet Thursday at the White House, and the opponents say they'll protest there. Brewer says she hopes she and Obama can agree on solutions to improve border security. The new law will require police enforcing any other law to examine immigration status if there is reasonable suspicion a person is in the country illegally.
The Obama administration is preparing for a possible challenge to the law.
