Obama to protect 5M from deportation
WASHINGTON — President Obama is considering an executive order that would protect as many as 5 million people from deportation, administration officials said Thursday. But the officials — speaking on condition of anonymity, citing internal deliberations — said the details are still being developed and called reports of specific action “pre-decisional.” The New York Times, also citing anonymous administration officials, reported Thursday that a key part of the plan would allow immigrant parents of American citizen children to apply for work authorizations that would allow them to stay in the country. The newspaper said the order could come as soon as next week, when President Obama returns from a week-long trip to Asia.
