Biden met for two-and-a-half hours with leaders from various faith communities. Participants emerged from the meeting encouraged that the Obama administration isn’t giving up the fight even though efforts in the Senate so far have failed.

But round two on gun control may have to wait. Participants say it was clear from the meeting that another vote won’t take place until after Congress finishes work on an immigration overhaul.

Participants say some clergy who represent evangelical and conservative communities had reservations about the legislation, especially about expanded background checks. But they say Biden and his aides reassured them the legislation isn’t overly broad.
