WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama plans a meeting Tuesday on immigration reform with several groups and leaders.

The White House says the afternoon meeting will be with a broad group of business, law enforcement, religious, and current and former elected and appointed leaders from across the political spectrum. The statement issued late Monday was attributed to a White House senior official who was not further identified.

The statement said the president planned to discuss the importance of fixing the nation's "broken immigration system" to meet the country's 21st century economic and national security needs.

Some immigration reform advocates have criticized Obama's efforts on immigration reform.
