Obama says he can live with piecemeal approach on immigration

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Tuesday a piecemeal approach to achieving a U.S. immigration overhaul in the U.S. Congress is acceptable to him if it is easier than gaining passage of one large legislative bill.

At a Wall Street Journal forum, Obama said he remains optimistic that an elusive immigration overhaul will be completed. A Senate-passed reform bill has been stalled in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

"If they want to chop that thing up in five pieces, as long as all five pieces get done, I don't care what it looks like," Obama said.
