Immigration a main topic for the State of the Union address

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

With 30 million people expected to watch the State of the Union, many will be here in Southern Arizona as the President speaks on his immigration policies.

This is just one of three major topics the president is expected to speak about this evening, with unemployment and increasing the minimum wage rounding out the State of the Union.  Immigration reform is a carryover from his 2013 State of the Union address; some say President Obama will discuss border security, the visa system and a pathway to citizenship.  

According to political analysts the President is not expected to speak about a possible Republican plan on immigration, instead giving the GOP some time to come up with a strategy. 

As most of the U.S. population expected to tune in for the State of the Union this evening, the White House is framing tonight's address as the beginning to a year of action. 

For those interested in watching tune in to KOLD at 7 p.m. tonight to watch the State of the Union live, as well as streaming online.
