President Obama has reportedly told the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Jeh Johnson to continue the review of his department’s deportation policies! The President has instructed him to delay the release of the report until after Congress takes its August recess. The White House is concerned that the Republican controlled House would not act on any Immigration Reform legislation if the President tries to act on his own, using his Executive Authority. At least it looks like Immigration Reform still has a chance in this Congress or at least a compromised version.
