(George Lin) The president is expected to take a more laid back approach on the immigration issue in an effort to give Republicans and Democrats a chance to hammer out an agreement.
Obama is said not to be planning action on reducing detentions and deportations...at least for the time being.
The news comes as a big disappointment to people illegally in the country.
They argue the amnesty process isn't moving quickly enough, especially for those who want to legally work and make economic contributions.
During his speech, the President Obama is expected to address those economic benefits, stress urgency on the issue, and applaud bipartison efforts to come to a solution.
