Following his meeting with three leading members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus over the number of deportations of undocumented immigrants during his administration, the Obama White House announced, late last week, a possible change to its deportation policy. President Obama announced in a meeting readout that he has requested a review of his administration’s enforcement policies for immigration laws to see if that enforcement can be done “more humanely within the confines of the law,” the White House said Thursday. The announcement follows months of insistence that there was nothing the administration could do to stem the flow of deportations short of Congress passing comprehensive immigration reform, which is unlikely to happen soon.
