The Obama administration's proposal for changes to deportation is good news for the estimated 1.4 million undocumented minors and youth who could benefit from it. Or is it?
The announcement — in lieu of more substantial Dream Act legislation — gives undocumented youth a reprieve from deportation and the chance to apply for a temporary work visa.
But the process needs clarification. This type of administrative decision can be overturned just as easily as it was announced.

The House of Representatives will hold a symbolic vote to repeal President Obama's health-care law later today. It's the 33rd time Republicans have tried to repeal or rescind parts of the law. However, the AP notes Republicans "are seizing on one wrinkle to bolster their election-year case for repeal -- the court's judgment that the penalty for failing to get insurance is a tax." Nonetheless, the bill has no chance of passing in the Senate or ever reaching the president's desk.
