US President Obama gives push to Immigration laws, says 'will never give up' Part-1

Las Vegas, Nov 22 (ANI): A day after unveiling plans for immigration reform, United States President Barack Obama signed the executive order designed to bring about those changes at a high school in Nevada. Obama said that he will not give up on the reforms and will do whatever to make the senates pass the bill on the same. This is the president's most extensive use of executive power in a year in which they have become his signature way of working around congressional gridlock. The order eases the threat of deportation for some 4.7 million undocumented immigrants. While speaking in Nevada, President Obama said that the nation has lost more than a year not passing the bill on immigrants which leads families to part and business entrepreneurs to leave which US can no longer afford. Meanwhile, he also announced about the temporary relief to the immigrants in US, a nation which goes with principle of fairness and democracy and justice to all irrespective of their background and nationality.
