The fight over immigration reform between President Barack Obama and Congress is heating up, as the President appears to be determined to use his executive power to make reforms without action from Capitol Hill.
Later today, Chicago Congressman Luis Gutierrez plans to call on President Obama to stop deporting immigrants. Gutierrez says deportation is tearing apart families in Illinois and across the country. The Chicago Democrat says Obama should do everything in his power to address the crisis that has been created by the Senate’s failure to pass immigration reform.
Gutierrez has scheduled a press conference with the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights to discuss the current immigration laws and the status of deportations in the United States.
