In a roundtable discussion today with Latino journalists from Yahoo, MSN, and AOL, President Barack Obama was asked about his take on why The Dream Act has not passed.

Here is what he said:

President Obama said that his Administration has done everything he could (for example, shifting the immigration emphasis on those in the country with criminal records and away from DREAMERs who have been in this country since they were children), but in the end he still needs to follow the law and if the Dream Act were to pass, it would have to go to the legislative process.
