Immigration Executive Action Imminent
President Barak Obama appears to be moving forward with a plan to take executive action on Immigration.
An announcement could come as early as next week. This could be a 10 part plan expanding deferred action to aliens who came to the United States as children and also extending status to parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents. It is estimated that the President’s proposal could help 4.5 million undocumented aliens. If similar to the current DACA program the plan would provide freedom from deportation, permission to work and perhaps travel outside the U.S. Other parts of the program would deal with border security and the border patrol.
It is speculated that the President’s plan would take effect around the new year.
Of course there will be much controversy on Capitol Hill if the President does move forward with his plan. Much opposition by the Republican led Congress to the President’s unilateral action would be expected. All of this follows the Republican led House failure to take up the immigration bill passed by the Senate last year.
