In a bold move, on November 20, 2014, President Obama announced his Immigration Accountability Executive Actions to address flaws in the current immigration system.
On November 20, 2014, President Obama released the long-anticipated “Executive Action” on immigration reform. See here, here and here.
President Obama announced today that he will address the nation on Thursday evening, November 20, 2014, to announce the executive actions he will be taking on immigration reform. A follow up speech is scheduled for Friday in Las Vegas, Nevada, to provide additional details regarding his plan.
Word is, immigration reform could come as soon as this week. That, of course, would come in the form of executive action from President Barack Obama. But what might it look like? How expansive can it really be if it comes in the form of executive action?
Ever since President Obama announced that he intended to make a move on immigration reform before the year is out, the media has been in a full tizzy. Though he has yet to announce what exactly his plan will be, some expect him to roll it out as early as this week, and if Obama does make good on his commitment to executive action, or “whatever lawful actions he could take” while acting alone, our country might very well be facing an entirely different playing field as we go into 2015.
