Report: Obama To Sign Executive Amnesty Friday In Vegas
(Newsmax) – President Barack Obama plans to describe the steps he will take to fix the immigration system in an address to the nation on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET , the White House said on its Facebook page on Wednesday.

Obama also said he will travel to Del Sol High School in Las Vegas on Friday to discuss his action. The school was where he first laid out his ideas for immigration reform two years ago, he said.
