listen Listen: Obama's full housing market speech
President Barack Obama's full speech on the housing market delivered on Tuesday, Aug. 6, at Desert Vista High School in Phoenix, Ariz.

PHOENIX -- Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton has hand-delivered a letter to President Barack Obama from a Phoenix ``Dreamer.''

The president was in Arizona for a brief visit Tuesday to give a speech about housing and the economy.

Stanton was among several officials who greeted Obama on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport after Air Force One landed shortly before noon.

Stanton presented Obama with a letter from Tony Valdovinos. He's a ``Dreamer'' who is among the 300,000 young people who are now able to work in the United States as a result of the Obama administration's ``deferred action'' initiative.

In the letter, Valdovinos thanked Obama for helping people like him live without fear for the first time in his life and turning ``Dreamers'' into achievers.

Obama departed Phoenix shortly after 2 p.m.
