President Obama heads to Texas

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - President Obama is headed to Texas today to attend fundraisers for the Democratic party. His visit to Texas will also include a meeting with Governor Rick Perry to discuss the safe housing of children who entered the country illegally and are waiting for an immigration hearing.

President Obama will also talk with community and state leaders about the surge in illegal immigration. On Tuesday, the President requested almost $4 billion from Congress to handle the problem. The money would be used to feed and care for the tens of thousands of unaccompanied children who cross the border.

It will also be used to build new detention facilities and hire immigration lawyers to speed up processing.
