Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton Gives President Obama a Letter Written By Arizona Dreamer

Mayor Greg Stanton briefly spoke with President Barack Obama when he arrived in Phoenix to speak about the U.S. housing market.

Along with a welcome, a handshake and a half-hug, Stanton had a letter for Obama written by a local Dreamer -- Antonio (Tony) Valdovinos.

The letter thanked the president for his deferred action initiative and support of comprehensive immigration reform.
