Topic and Guest: Dissecting the Executive Order on Immigration. On November 20, 2014 President Barack Obama issued an Executive Order on Immigration. President Obama said his action will 1) provide “additional resources for law enforcement” at the borders; 2) “make it easier and faster for high-skilled immigrants, graduates, and entrepreneurs to stay” in the U.S.; and 3) “take steps to deal responsibly with the millions of undocumented immigrants who already live” in the country—temporary keeping about 5 million undocumented immigrants from being deported. Africa Now! dissects what the Executive Order means for African and other immigrants with Ms. Loide Rosa Jorge Attorney at Law.
