White House spokesman Jay Carney said Pres. Barack Obama is actively trying to persuade lawmakers to pass the Gang of Eight's amnesty bill. Not only is the President lobbying lawmakers from both sides of the aisle, but his political activism group, Organizing for America, is mobilizing its activists to help get the bill passed.

"The president has been working very hard on this matter. He's had numerous conversations with lawmakers in both parties," Carney said during his press breifing on Tuesday.

Pres. Obama has said the Schumer-Rubio-Obama Amnesty bill would be an "historic achievement if passed."
