WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) -- The group Michigan United gathered Thursday evening in Wyoming to watch the President's address on his executive action regarding immigration reform.
Michigan United supporters said that while the executive action only provides temporary relief for immigrants, it will keep thousands of Michigan families together until Congress fixes the problem.
"This is not about a political war; it's about children, it's about our families, our homes," said Cindy Hicks. "We are tax-paying members of society, and we want to contribute and be everything we can be in life."
Opponents of the President's plan say he acted more like an emperor, overstepping the authority of the presidency. They say the President's action not only hurts chances of passing immigration overhaul in the House and Senate but also damages his relationhip with the incoming Republican-controlled Congress.
