The White House has urged Congress to work on an immigration overhaul that addresses what it calls its four "pillars" of immigration reform: securing the border; limiting family sponsorships; ending the diversity visa lottery program; and providing legal status for recipients of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

The president's remarks are scheduled for 2 p.m.
