Obama's decision on U.S. deportations poses political risks

Handout of former Guatemala army member Rios being transferred to a plane in Mesa, ArizonaBy Jeff Mason and Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama’s decision on possible changes to U.S. deportation policy sets up an election-year skirmish that could help Democrats win points with their political base while irritating Republicans who are open to immigration reform. The Obama administration is expected to announce revisions in the coming weeks to policies that determine how undocumented immigrants are selected for removal from the United States. Advocates want sweeping executive actions since broad legislation to rewrite immigration laws is stalled in Congress. But experts say the changes are likely to be modest as the White House holds out hope for a legislative fix this summer before November’s midterm congressional elections or next year when a new Congress has been seated.
