Obama to defer deportations for up to 5 million illegals

Obama-pen-phoneAccording to reports, Barack Obama could announce his executive plans for immigration reform as early as next week, and he intends to defer deportations for up to 5 million illegal aliens:

Obama administration officials familiar with the president’s plan told the New York Times that many of those undocumented immigrants could also receive work permits.

The president is set to unveil his immigration plan in the face of intense conservative backlash, with Republican lawmakers insistent that such executive action would derail any hope of bipartisan compromise on a range of other issues.

Under the potential Obama blueprint, parents of children who are American citizens or legal residents would be protected from deportation. However, the Times said the administration is also weighing a plan to limit such benefits to those who have lived in the U.S. at least a decade.
