On Tuesday, May 13, 2014, President Barack Obama met with law enforcement leaders about fixing the immigration system in an effort to seek support from the law enforcement and business community. In his meeting on immigration reform with the law enforcement community, President Obama declared that the House Republicans have a short timeline for action. "The closer we get to the midterm elections, the harder it is to get things done around here," Obama said, according to the White House transcript. "We've got maybe a window of two, three months to get the ball rolling in the House of Representatives."
