President Obama recently announced his much-anticipated 10-part policy initiative via executive order that covers immigration reform across a broad spectrum of issues, the most controversial of which is the immigration policy reform regarding undocumented immigrants in the United States. This part of the plan could potentially suspend deportation for millions of aliens under what is called "deferred action." which gives aliens facing deportation a reprieve. Deferred action allows the government to exercise prosecutorial discretion and allows the government to make a formal determination not to pursue removal of an unqualified or unlawfully present individual for a specific period of time. Aliens granted deferred action receive work authorization, social security numbers, and government issued IDs.
