(CNN) — President Barack Obama on Thursday touted the immigration reforms that the Senate passed in June but were blocked in the House, and called on House Republicans to work with Democrats to get a deal. "This reform comes as close to anything we've got to a law that will benefit everybody now and far into the future. Let's see if we can get it done, and let's see if we can get it done this year," Obama said at the White House.
