Obama postpones review of US deportation policy

US President Barack Obama arrives to deliver a statement from the Rose Garden at the White House in Washington, DC, May 27, 2014President Barack Obama has postponed a review of US deportation policy for undocumented workers, hoping to give legislative reform a better chance, a White House official said. Obama called on Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to "hold on the release" of the results and recommendations of a review of procedures for deporting undocumented workers, the official said. In doing so, the White House hopes to keep Republican push-back in Congress at bay, postponing a review that could drive those on the opposite side of the isle from legislative compromise. Obama has previously warned that a narrow window remains to pass legislative immigration reform before mid-term elections, seeking to keep alive perhaps his last hope for a major second-term domestic achievement.
