President Obama quietly moving on immigration reform

Washington (CNN) - The President was scheduled to meet with grassroots leaders at 3:15 Monday afternoon to discuss immigration reform, a White House official confirms.

Two sources outside the White House involved in the talks say immigration reform is definitely on the President's radar, and that Monday's closed-press meeting comes on the heels of a number of immigration movements that have been quietly percolating over the last 48 hours.

They point to National Security Advisor for Homeland Security John Brennan's meeting with Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, which is scheduled to take place as early as Monday in Arizona.

Secretary Napolitano has also recently introduced a number of border security initiatives.
