This is the White House Live. At approximately 1:15 PM, the President will make an important announcement from the Office of Homeland Security about immigration and the status for persons who came into the country under the age of 16. If these individuals meet the criteria as established by Homeland Security, they can apply for work permits whether they are in removal proceedings or not.
