President Obama will meet separately with labor leaders and CEOs at the White House Tuesday, hoping to build support for his immigration plan on both sides of the ideological divide.

Obama’s day would be infinitely more interesting if he combined the two meetings, but alas, he’ll meet with progressive and labor leaders at 11 a.m. and the CEOs at 3:20 p.m.
