Obama To Make Immigration Statement In Prime Time On Thursday

President Barack Obama will make an announcement about immigration in a prime-time address Thursday night, the White House said. Obama has been weighing several executive actions on immigration, and would reportedly protect up to five million unauthorized immigrants from being deported. Republicans oppose unilateral action by Obama and are vowing to stop steps he takes. (Updates with White House confirmation of announcement.)
