Homeland Security may change deportation policy

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Associated Press reports that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is considering limiting deportations of immigrants living in the country illegally but without serious criminal records.  On President Barack Obama's orders, Johnson is conducting a politically charged review of U.S. deportation policy.

The potential change could shield tens of thousands of immigrants now removed each year solely because of repeated immigration violations.

Some opponents say the change is not enough.  Johnson is currently conducting a review of U.S. deportation policy.
