In a December 9 interview in Nashville with Telemundo’s news co-anchor, José Díaz-Balart, President Obama assured illegal immigrant viewers that if they meet certain qualifications, they "won't be deported."

The White House has admitted that under Obama’s proposal to offer amnesty to nearly five million illegal immigrants, those illegals would also receive tax credits and other benefits, prompting Republicans to further criticize the president’s immigration policy.

On a 219-197 vote that was mostly along party lines, the House of Representatives passed the Executive Amnesty Prevention Act of 2014 (H.R. 5759) on December 4. The largely symbolic measure was passed in response to President Obama’s November 20 announcement that he would use executive action to remove the “fear of deportation” and provide three-year work permits for up to five million illegal aliens currently living in the United States.

Seventeen states have decided to pursue a lawsuit against the Obama administration over President Obama’s issuance of an executive order that would ease the threat of deportation for millions of illegal immigrants. The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday and named the top immigration enforcement agencies as defendants.
