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.

Democrat senators crafted a bill that seeks to cut by $1 billion President Barack Obama’s request for emergency funds for the support of Central American children crossing the United States border alone, the Associated Press reported on July 22.
Senate appropriations committee chairwoman Barbara Mikulski, a Democrat representative of Maryland, was scheduled to file the proposed legislation on July 23. The measure, which slices Obama’s $3.7-billion funding request to $2.7 billion, will include appropriation for the $225-million Israel Iron Dome missile defense system that will be created to intercept short-range rockets and mortars, and $615 million to address wildfires.
The proposal will be met with Republican demands to alter the 2008 policies allowing each refugee child to stand before an immigration judge, so their exit from the U.S. will be expedited.
