The scoop from Washington

Obama hits White House briefing room at 11:30 a.m. ET Watch it live here

WASHINGTON--President Barack Obama--for the second time in less than 24 hours--hits the Brady Briefing Room at the White House, at 11:30 a.m. ET on Tuesday. Last night, Obama read a statement--and took no questions--in the wake of the Boston bomb blasts. The event is open to the press--meaning--the expectation is he will take at least a few questions. What could be on the plate today: An update on the federal government response to the explosions and a boost to the bi-partisan immigration bill. Obama added to his schedule today a meeting with Sen. John McCain (R-Az.) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY.) two members of the "Gang of Eight" who drafted the sweeping immigration bill.

The "Gang of Eight" cancelled a press conference to unveil their immigration proposals, with everything eclipsed today by the Boston tragedy.
