WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama comes home to Chicago on Tuesday as part of what will be aggresive sales job to winpublic support for bypassing Congress and issuing immigration executive orders to save millions from deportation.

A White House official said in an e-mail, “On Tuesday, November 25, the President will travel to the Chicago, Illinois area to meet with members of the community and discuss the executive actions he iss taking to fix our broken immigration system. Following these events, the President will return to Washington, D.C. Further details about the President’s travel to Illinois will be made available in the coming days.”

Dick Durbin D-Ill.will be at the Benito Juarez High School on Saturday to help launch the “Illinois is Ready” (www.ilisready.org) drive.
