PHOENIX - Members of the Arizona-based immigrant's rights group, Promise Arizona, will be in the crowd as President Barack Obama takes the stage Tuesday in Las Vegas, Nevada.
They were invited by the White House to listen as the President unveils his comprehensive immigration reform plan.
Otoniel Navarrete with Promise Arizona said he wants the President to be bold with his plan and work together with Congress to take action in the coming months.
Obama's plan comes one day after a group of eight bipartisan senators revealed their plan.
There are early reports that Obama will praise the senate plan that included a path to citizenship for the nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.
But some say he will reject the group's border security measure, saying it will only create more obstacles.
Sources close to the president think he will argue citizenship can be reached without added security.
Instead, experts believe he will push for a quicker, more unconditional path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.
Aside from that, most think it will be similar, including a crackdown on employers who hire undocumented workers, and an earned path to citizenship.
The plan will call for undocumented immigrants to register with the government, undergo background checks, pay back taxes and fines and learn English.
