Obama unveils major immigration overhaul

  • In a major immigration overhaul introduced by President Barack Obama, millions of immigrants who are living illegally in the United States can now apply for work permits, media reports say.

    This would include immigrants living in the country for five years having children living legally in the US.

    Overall, around five million people are likely to benefit in some way or the other from the measures unveiled by the president through an executive order bypassing the Republican-controlled Congress.
