Obama orders delay of immigration deportation review

President_Official_Portrait_HiRes

David Nakamura of the Washington Post reports that President Obama has delayed a review of deportation policies until the end of summer in hopes that Congress will enact immigration reform, administration officials said Tuesday. Obama reportedly instructed Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to continue his review, but the results will not be announced before lawmakers take their summer recess in August. The White House fears that Republicans would balk if the administration acts to stem the deportation of undocumented immigrants and end hopes of a legislative compromise.
