The president’s plan would defer deportation to parents whose kids are either U.S. citizens or permanent legal residents. Arizona Congressman Raul Grijalva, a Democrat from Tucson, applauds the move.

Arizona Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Glenn Hamer says he still supports a comprehensive immigration reform package but is unhappy with the President’s executive actions.

Judy Gans is Program Manager for Immigration Policy at the Udall Center at the University of Arizona. She says the President’s executive action won’t help clear up the continuing argument over what the appropriate penalty is for people who’ve violated U.S. immigration laws.
