Immigration and the economy are expected to be the top issues in discussion as President Barack Obama addresses a major Hispanic civil rights organization on Monday.
The Latino civil rights group, the National Council of La Raza, is holding its annual conference in Washington.
The group's leader, Janet Murgia, says Hispanics want to hear from Obama on a range of issues on which he has yet to take action. Obama promised in his 2008 campaign to tackle immigration reform, and some in the Latino community have criticized him for failing to do so.
The Obama Administration has also drawn criticism for a record number of deportations last year.
