It was announced this afternoon that President Obama will speak about the state of immigration reform from the brand new School of International Service building on American University’s main campus Thursday, the same morning a slew of new freshman enter the grounds for new student orientation.
This is not Obama’s first time on campus. He was endorsed by the late Sen. Ted Kenedy (D-Mass.) who was accompanied by his niece Caroline Kennedy on Jan. 28, 2008 during the presidential election season from Bender Arena in the heart of AU’s main campus.
Update 4:38 p.m.: The event is invitation only and only attendees approved by the White House will be allowed near the building.
The speech will be streamed live at: whitehouse.gov/live.
