With President Obama poised to lay out his plans on immigration reform tonight (watch it here or here), we recommend the following as excellent overviews to this controversial move: Executive Discretion as to Immigration: Legal Overview (CRS); the Migration Policy Institute has many informative publications worth a look;  Brookings Institution’s immigration page and this Council on Foreign Relations page are also relevant. A previous blog entry on What Are Executive Orders? will provide background on this type of administrative process.
