Cermak Rd., to celebrate President Obama’s announcement of executive action on immigration last Thursday. In Obama’s speech, he mentioned a deferred action program that will help undocumented immigrants with US citizen or legal immigrant children to apply for a three-year protection from deportation and work permits. The announcement also included an expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
