President Obama vowed Friday he wouldn’t “stand by” on taking immigration executive action, declaring improvements were “way overdue” to the way the federal government handles the millions of immigrants in the country illegally.
“I indicated to Speaker Boehner several months ago that if in fact Congress failed to act, I would use all the lawful authority that I possess to try to make the system work better,” Obama told reporters at a press conference in Burma. “That’s going to happen. That’s going to happen before the end of the year.”
Multiple reports have suggested that Obama is poised to take sweeping executive action that could extend protection from deportation to millions of immigrants. The president appears to be poised to offer the parents of children who are legal residents or citizens of the United States the chance to avoid deportation proceedings and apply for work permits.
