President Barack Obama will announce executive orders on immigration Thursday during an address to the nation, the White House confirmed in a Facebook video.
“Everybody agrees that our immigration system is broken. Unfortunately Washington has allowed the problem to fester for too long,” Obama said in the video. “So what I’m going to be laying out is the things that I can do with my lawful authority as president to make the system work better even as I continue to work with Congress and encourage them to get a bipartisan, comprehensive bill that can solve the entire problem.”
Obama will speak at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday. He will follow up the announcement with a rally Friday in Las Vegas at Del Sol High School.
