Obama to defy Congress and unveil immigration plan

A man walks next to the US - Mexico border wall on November 19, 2014 in Calexico, CaliforniaUS President Barack Obama will declare Thursday his intention to give temporary residency to millions of undocumented migrants, setting up a clash with an angry Congress. Obama’s executive action could affect up to five million of the estimated 11 million people — most of them from Mexico and Central America — living and working illegally in the United States. Since 1986, when then Republican president Ronald Reagan granted a sweeping amnesty, all attempts at major reform of the country’s immigration system have failed. Faced with a congressional stalemate, Obama — who made the issue one of his priorities on taking office in 2009 — has decided, with two years left in the White House, to take the matter into his own hands.
