U.S. Latino groups expect relief on deportations from Obama

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks before signing a Presidential Memorandum at the White House in WashingtonBy Roberta Rampton WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Latino groups and immigration advocates said on Friday they expect President Barack Obama to ease back from record deportations of people living illegally in the United States after discussing their concerns with him for almost two hours. Obama announced late on Thursday that he had decided to review deportation practices to seek a more “humane” way to enforce immigration laws. His surprise decision came after months of pressure from Latino groups, who are frustrated with stalled efforts to overhaul immigration laws to provide a path to citizenship for about 11 million people living illegally in the United States. More than a dozen immigration advocates met with Obama, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and other top White House officials.
