Immigration Reform Groups Urge Obama to Act Alone
By Julian Aguilar

The People Improving Communities Through Organizing Campaign for Citizenship last week alleged that prosecutorial discretion is being underused. Since 2012, less than 10 percent of immigration cases closed nationally were settled because of discretionary measures, according to data collected and analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. In Texas courts, the figures were even lower. The group also demanded that the president broaden the scope of deferred action to allow more undocumented immigrants to qualify for the program.
