One million—as unbelievable as it sounds, that’s the number of immigrants the Obama Administration has deported since the President was sworn into office.
In a major speech to Latino leaders yesterday, President Obama claimed that he couldn’t do more to stop these deportations because Congress won’t let him. But the crowd knew better. They erupted with chants of “Yes you can!” “yes you can!” 
The President heard their message loud and clear. Now, we all need to ensure that this message reverberates across the country.
Instead of relieving the pain, the Obama Administration has decided to outpace and outflank President Bush on harsh immigration enforcement.
It’s time for President Obama to order his Administration to uphold the values he promised us back in 2008 and to deliver positive change that we can all believe in.
Legal experts agree that the President has the executive authority to change the way his administration enforces their policies.
Such a change in policy would provide critical relief for immigrants and their families until Congress passes a permanent, legislative solution.
