SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — President Barack Obama visited San Francisco Monday where he made a speech on immigration reform and attended two fundraisers at the SFJazz Center and the home of Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff.
Air Force One arrived at San Francisco International Airport shortly after 10:30 a.m. Monday. The president was greeted on the tarmac by U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein before stepping into a black SUV and being driven to the Betty Ong Recreation Center in the heart of San Francisco’s Chinatown.
There, the president addressed a crowd of ticketed guests that included members of the Board of Supervisors, the heads of several city agencies and former mayor and current California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom.
Toward the end of his speech, a man in the stands behind the president yelled out, “I need your help. For my family. Stop deportation. You have the power.”
