Obama Administration Revamps Deportation Policy

The Obama administration says it will review the cases of more than 300,000 illegal immigrants facing deportation to determine if they can stay in the United States.

In a letter to a group of lawmakers, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says officials will review each case to identify "low priority" offenders, including those who have been in the U.S. for a lengthy period, to allow the agency to focus more on deporting convicted criminals and others who pose a threat to public safety.
