WASHINGTON (CBS) -- President Obama delivered remarks in the Rose Garden today (Friday, June 15) on the Department of Homeland Security's announcement regarding Immigration and the Dream Act.
In the midst of his speech, Neil Munro, reporter for a conservative news website called "The Daily Caller," interrupted him by shouting a question before the president had finished his statements. President Obama said he was not taking questions at that time and continued to speak.
Towards the end of his speech, President Obama referenced the reporter by saying, " ...and the answer to your question Sir- and the next time I prefer you let me finish my statement before you ask that question- is this is the right thing to do for the American people."
Effective immediately, The Dream Act, permit some young people who were brought to the United States as children, who do not present a risk to national security or public safety, and meet several key criteria, will not be considered for deportation, nor would they be permitted to be entered into deportation proceedings. Those who demonstrate that they meet the criteria will be eligible to receive deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and will be eligible to apply for work authorization.
