President Obama intends to unveil, as early as next Friday, a 10-part plan to overhaul United States immigration policy using executive action, and the program will include suspending deportation for millions, Fox News reports. Quoting a source close to the White House, Fox News reports that the plan contains 10 initiatives that include boosting border security, improving pay for immigration officers, and perhaps most controversially, providing a reprieve to the millions facing deportation. The plan calls for expanding deferred action for undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children—but also for the parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents. The latter move could allow more than 4.5 million immigrant adults with U.S.-born children to stay, according to estimates.

The other major option, via Egypt, has been closed due to conflicts between Egyptian forces and Islamic militants.
