Obama To Announce Immigration Plan That Will Protect Up To 5 Million

Posted: Updated:

President Obama will announce an executive order that will defer deportation and provide work permits for undocumented immigrants who have been in the U.S. for at least five years and have no criminal record.

He will also expand his 2012 action to protect the so-called Dreamers (children brought to the country illegally but who are long-time residents) by raising the eligibility age, which is currently limited to those who are no older than 30 years old, according to two sources in the immigration activist community who have been informed of the impending announcement.

Obama administration sources say the number of those affected will be close to five million, after implementation and verification of applicants -- a time-consuming process.
