This morning, President Obama announced a policy—effective today—that will protect people from deportation who came to the States as kids. The executive order applies to folks who are under 30, got here before they turned 16 and have lived in the country for more than five years. Immigrants also must have finished high school, and be in college or the military. A criminal record disqualifies you.

Obama is scheduled to speak about the announcement in the Rose Garden today. There’s a live feed here.
