WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says the biblical command to "love thy neighbor as thyself" is as pertinent now as ever.    

The president said Friday that an entire community suffers when some members cannot pay their mortgages or find jobs. He called on Americans to work together to build a better future for everyone, including immigrants.    

Obama made his remarks at the Esperanza National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast and Conference in Washington.
