WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says tonight, he'll be laying out the things he can do within his "lawful authority" to improve the immigration system. Obama plans to sign executive actions tomorrow that could spare from deportation as many as 5 million immigrants in the U.S. illegally.

Republicans are vehemently opposed to the president's likely actions, which include stopping the deportations of immigrants in the U.S. illegally if they're the parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, and they've been in the country for at least five years.
