In a bold move, on November 20, 2014, President Barack Obama announced his Immigration Accountability Executive Actions to address flaws in the current immigration system. The plan contains three parts:

  2. Administrative relief from deportation, which will allow certain undocumented immigrants to apply to remain in the United States; and
  3. Business-friendly policies to enhance our competitiveness and attract foreign investment and talent.
