The Secret Service is not releasing details about the president’s motorcade, but West Los Angeles streets will likely be congested. Officials warn that traffic in West Los Angeles will likely be congested from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Immigration activists are planning to protest Obama’s deportation policies.

KNX 1070’s Claudia Peschuitta talked with Westside LA Councilman Bill Rosendahl, who said he wants to make sure that traffic and parking are affected as little as possible as the President travels around Culver City.

“It’s going to be in my District. He’s going to a restaurant there called the Tavern. But he is gonna take the chopper to the VA Property. I applaud that – that means getting there will be easier than it could have been,” Rosendahl said.

“We’ve made it very clear to the White House that their voters here are not just donors and we all care about our own lives as well as his life and so gridlock is one of our biggest problems on the Westside. They are showing sensitivity,” he added.
