Obama delays acting on immigration until after November elections

U.S. President Barack Obama answers a question at a press conference at the conclusion of the NATO Summit at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, WalesPresident Barack Obama reversed course on Saturday and delayed taking executive action on immigration reform until after November congressional elections, bowing to concerns it could cost his fellow Democrats control of the U.S. Obama had promised in a high-profile White House appearance in June to announce unilateral measures by the end of summer if Congress did not enact immigration reform legislation. “The truth of the matter is that the politics did shift midsummer because of that problem,” Obama said in an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” set to air on Sunday. Obama said he plans to act later this year after making more of a public case for his actions, which are expected to remove the threat of deportation for some of the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States.
