Obama defends decision to delay immigration action

FILE - In this June 30, 2014, file photo President Barack Obama, accompanied by Vice President Joe Biden, pauses while making an announcement about immigration reform in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington. Then the president said he was done waiting for House Republicans to act on immigration, and that he planned to act on his own via executive action. According to White House officials Saturday, Sept. 6, 2014, Obama has decided to delay any executive action on immigration until after the November congressional elections. The two officials said Obama decided Friday as he returned to Washington from a NATO summit in Wales that circumventing Congress with executive actions on immigration during the midterm campaign would politicize the issue and hurt future efforts to pass a broad overhaul of the immigration system.
