Shielding Immigrants From Deportation
Senior officials are considering a policy change for immigrants who don't have serious criminal records. It would shield them from deportation. The possible change follows a review ordered by President Obama. The former acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement supports the move, but Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has yet to weigh in on the possible change. With sweeping immigration reform stalled in the House of Representatives, President Obama is under pressure to curb deportations. Administration officials say they will seek near-term goals because comprehensive reform is only possible with congressional action.
