Obama's immigration speech has no surprises; Ferguson police officer will resign


I was out at a concert while President Obama spoke for 15 minutes about the actions he will take with Executive Order on immigration.


There were no surprises.  Obama said that immigrants who met certain qualifications could leave living under “shadows”. 

He also challenged Republicans to “pass a bill.”  He also said “We will deport felons, not families.”
    
The main story on CNN from Jim Acosta is here
  
About five million immigrants would be shielded from deportation for three years.
  
In another development, there are negotiations for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson to resign, while a decision from the grand jury is expected.
