President Barack Obama has gotten a jump on Father's Day. He planned to spend much of Friday promoting the importance of being a good dad.
Among other things, he will host a town hall-style meeting on personal responsibility.
He will also invite male students from local schools to visit the White House.
But the President started his day in prayer at the National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast sponsored by Esperanza.
He told the crowd that the millions of people, inside the U.S. illegally, should have the chance to become citizens after meeting certain requirements.
He says the biblical command to "love they neighbor as thyself" is as relevant now as ever.
"At a time when there's no shortage of challenges to occupy our time, it's even more important to step back and to give thanks and to seek guidance from each other, but most importantly from god," Obama said.
The President offered thanks for the freedom of religion, and told the crowd they must remember America is a nation of Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and non-believers.
