President Obama had no public events scheduled on Saturday but this may be so he can rest up for his DNC/DCCC fundraising schedule for the next three days. The President’s West Coast tour will bring him to two public events (one on the Economy and one on Immigration Reform) and Seven (count them 7) DNC/DCCC fundraisers.
On Monday, November 25th, President Obama will travel to San Francisco, California for an immigration reform event at the Betty Ann Ong Chinese Recreation Center as well two events for the DNC.
In the afternoon, President Obama will head to Los Angeles, California where he will attend two more DCCC/DSCC fundraising events. Obama will remain overnight in Los Angeles.
On Tuesday, November 26th, President Obama will attend another DNC fundraiser followed by an event on the economy at Dreamworks Animation. The President will return to Washington, DC on Tuesday night.

FACT SHEET: Fixing our Broken Immigration System so Everyone Plays by the Rules
America’s immigration system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers and there are 11 million people living in the shadows. Neither is good for the economy or the country.
It is time to act to fix the broken immigration system in a way that requires responsibility from everyone —both from the workers here illegally and those who hire them—and guarantees that everyone is playing by the same rules.

3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.
4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.
