An Immigration Reform – Unique Times

President Barack Obama imposed the most sweeping immigration reform in a generation easing the threat of deportation for some 4.7 million undocumented immigrants and setting up a clash with Republicans who vow to fight his moves.

With 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, Obama’s plan would let some 4.4 million who are parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents remain in the country temporarily, without the threat of deportation.Those undocumented residents could apply legally for jobs and join American society, but not vote or qualify for insurance under the president’s healthcare law.

The measure would apply to those who have been in the United States for at last five years.An additional 270,000 people would be eligible for relief under the expansion of a 2012 move by Obama to stop deporting people brought illegally to the United States as children by their parents.
