Obama Weighs Delay in Action on Immigration

President Obama “is considering a delay of his most controversial proposals to revamp immigration laws through executive action until after the midterm elections in November, mindful of the electoral peril for Democratic Senate candidates,” the New York Times reports.

“The president vowed in late June to act unilaterally, declaring a deep frustration with what he termed Republican obstruction in Congress… But now Mr. Obama and his aides appear to be stepping back from a firm commitment to that timing, a move that could draw fire from immigration advocacy groups who are expecting decisive action soon.”
