Obama vows more humane immigration law enforcement

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks before signing a Presidential Memorandum at the White House in WashingtonBy Mark Felsenthal WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama has directed his Department of Homeland Security to enforce immigration laws “more humanely,” the White House said on Thursday. The president made the pledge at a meeting with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus at the White House. Obama pledged to work with them to pressure congressional Republicans to pass immigration reform, a second-term priority for him that appears stalled. “He has asked Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to do an inventory of the Department’s current practices to see how it can conduct enforcement more humanely within the confines of the law,” the White House said.
