Holds off deporting kids

8 Jul, 2014

Obama holds off on seeking legal changes needed to speed the deportation of immigrant children, as he asks Congress for billions in emergency funding for the problem at the US-Mexico border. An administration official tells Fox News they are still seeking the expanded legal authority to expedite the removal process of the immigrants.

We already sent a letter to the Congressional Leadership last week on our desire for expanded authorities and we are still seeking those authorities and have made clear we will work with Congress to get those authorities.
