The White House says President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit a suburban Detroit auto plant.

A presidential statement says Obama will participate in "an event on the economy" Monday afternoon at the Daimler Detroit Diesel plant in Wayne County's Redford Township.

The visit was planned as Obama works to get public backing for his positions and use that support to pressure Republicans to reach a deal on the "fiscal cliff."

Obama's visit also comes after Republicans in Michigan last week pushed right-to-work legislation through the state House and Senate. An Obama spokesman on Thursday repeated the president's opposition to right-to-work laws as the Michigan Legislature adopted the union-curbing measure.
