Fridays are awesome! I'm Carl Azuz for CNN STUDENT NEWS. Ten minutes of current events, zero minutes of commercials.A lot to cover today starting with last night's announcement of a controversial executive action.This is a policy set by the president without the consent of Congress. It can be challenged in court, it can be changed by another president.The one that President Obama announced last night has to do with immigration. There are more than 11 million people who live in the U.S. illegally.The president's action would allow 5 million of them, mostly the parents of children who were born in the U.S. to stay in the U.S. without the threat of being deported.The action allows them to stay for three years as long as they pass background checks and pay any taxes they owe.The action is limited, it cannot allow undocumented immigrants to stay permanently.It cannot provide a way for them to become U.S. citizens.It cannot give them access to government benefits or healthcare programs. That would all require Congress.Mass deportation would be both impossible and contrary to our character. What I'm describing is accountability, a common sense middle ground approach.If you meet the criteria, you can come out of the shadows and get right with the law. If you a criminal, you'll be deported.If you plan to enter the U.S. illegally, your chances of getting caught and sent back just went up.Republicans and Democrats agree that U.S. immigration policy needs to be changed.They don't agree on how to do that.
