"Mass amnesty would be unfair. Mass deportation would be both impossible and contrary to our character. What I'm describing is accountability. You can come out of the shadows and get right with the law," President Obama said during his address from The White House.
Up to 5 million undocumented immigrants will get protection from deportation and the ability to work legally in the United States.
That’s the idea from President Obama’s executive action on immigration. He made his announcement Thursday night — and detailed the beneficiaries include undocumented parents of legal permanent residents and U.S. citizens.
