The Obama administration announced today that it will halt the deportations and begin granting work permits for some undocumented students eligible for the DREAM Act.
In a press conference announcing the policy change, the president explained his reasons for issuing the Executive Order—which is a dream come true for many young Latinos and their families.
"They pledge allegiance to our flag. They are Americans in their hearts, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper," Obama said.
