Obama to announce immigration plans Thursday
WASHINGTON - People familiar with White House planning say President Barack Obama will announce on Thursday executive action on immigration that will sidestep Congress and shield potentially millions of immigrants illegally in the United States from deportation.
The administration is considering steps that would provide work permits for up to 5 million immigrants now living illegally in the U.S. Obama planned to hold a rally Friday in Las Vegas to draw attention to his decision.
The officials who spoke about Obama's announcement did so on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about it on the record.
