WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Obama is expected to sidestep Congress Thursday and issue an executive order to keep millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation.
The new immigration plan would also create work permits and tighten border security. Immigration attorneys say they’re preparing to be bombarded by people wanting to know how they’re protected after the President’s speech Thursday night.
“This will be an opportunity, hopefully, for millions of people to come out of the shadows and apply for some sort of relief, even though it’s a temporary measure at best,” said Charlotte immigration attorney Jordan Forsythe.
House Republicans say they could censure the President, de-fund his order, or create a resolution to reject it.
