Obama Pledges Immigration Executive Order By End Of Year
Brief summary: President Obama promised yesterday that he is going to make an immigration executive order (which we also call “administrative relief”) by the end of this year. The President stated that he will eliminate these Executive Orders if and when Congress enacts legislation which he can sign.
Additional information coming from other sources other than the article: Some people in the advocate community expect the President will announce the administrative relief by mid-December. We do not know who or how many people it will protect. One possibility is parents of U.S. citizens who have lived in the U.S. for a certain period of time. DREAMer groups and others are also pressing that the order include parents of young people with DACA.
