The White House Blog and White House Facebook page posted an announcement yesterday that on Thursday, November 20th at 8 p.m. ET, President Obama will lay out the Executive Actions he’s planning on taking to fix America’s broken Immigration system. The Nation can watch LIVE at WhiteHouse.gov/Live, and more than likely every major television news channel will also be carrying his address.
President Obama stated, “Everybody agrees that our immigration system is broken. Unfortunately, Washington has allowed the problem to fester for too long.” Further, he said, “So what I’m going to be laying out is the things that I can do with my lawful authority as President to make the system work better even as I continue to work with Congress and encourage them to get a bipartisan, comprehensive bill that can solve the entire problem”.
Exactly WHAT the President will do remains unknown, as there is much speculation about whom and how many people may benefit from the President’s Executive Action. We must wait as a Nation to hear of the details, as they have not been released to the Public.
We here at MVP Law Group feel it’s about time that our broken immigration system is fixed. We know that President Obama’s Executive Authority can only temporarily fix the problem, so we encourage the new Congress, which will meet for the first time in January, to act on Comprehensive Immigration Reform as soon as possible for the sake of the Country and our economy!
