PRESIDENT OBAMA TO ACCOUNCE IMMIGRATION PLAN
Rumors have been twirling that President Obama will soon announce his plans for reforming immigration law through use of his extensive executive authority. The president and high-level administration officials have repeatedly stated that such an announcement will be made before the end of the year, but a new report suggest it may happen this week.
According to reports, President Obama is considering an executive order that would prevent as many as 5 million people from being deported. The New York Times, citing anonymous administration officials, reported last week that a key part of the plan would allow immigrant parents of American citizen children to apply for work authorizations that would allow them to stay in the country. Thus, it appears that a key component of the administrative plan may include an expanded “deferred action” on immigrant children and their parents.
The announcement will take place on Thursday, November 19, 2014 when President Obama addresses the nation at 8 pm Eastern.
