Immigration News: Obama - I'll Act on My Own on Immigration.

Obama on Monday said he had little choice but to act alone. "If Congress will not do their job, at least we can do ours," Obama said. But seeking to slow deportations while simultaneously stemming the flow of young people across the U.S. Southern border presents Obama with a knotty set of policy choices. He asked Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Attorney General Eric Holder for recommendations by the end of summer on the types of executive actions he could take. Among the steps he could consider would be to focus deportations on people with serious criminal records, something the administration has already tried to do, with mixed results as quoted on abcNews.
