About a month ago, the Obama administration told the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to use prosecutorial discretion in deciding which immigrants get deported, specifically asking the immigration agency to use discretion and not deport immigrants with no criminal history, who came to the U.S. illegally as children, or parents with young children, or those who are married to U.S. citizens. How much have you heard about this new change in immigration policy?
