Obama: McCain "walked away" from immigration reform

Barack Obama pledged his support for immigration reform to a crowd of Hispanic leaders, accusing his Republican rival (who spoke first) of retreating on his vow to secure immigration reform.

He noted he and John McCain "used to work together to offer change on immigration....he deserves great credit for championing immigration reform.

But, Obama said, "what he didn't mention was that running for his party's nomination he walked away from that commitment. He said he wouldn't even support his own legislation if it came up for a vote."
