Legal scholars declare Obama’s immigration reform lawful
Posted on Tuesday, December 16th, 2014 at 5:43 pm
Over a hundred immigration professors and scholars publicly declared on November 25 that President Barack Obama’s action protecting several million illegal immigrants in the United States from deportation is constitutional, considering Obama’s rights to do so under his executive powers, the News & Advance reported.
Obama’s measures, which were put into place the third week of November, effectively shields parents of U.S. citizens or permanent legal residents from deportation and allows them the chance to apply for work permits.
The other measure will not allow the deportation of illegal immigrants who came to the country as children. Both of the measures could affect around 4.4 million people–the largest executive action of its kind.
