Obama offer to 5m illegal migrants


Nearly five million people living illegally in the US can escape deportation under sweeping changes to the US immigration system.

US President Barack Obama will unveil his plan, which he is enacting without Congress, in a televised address.

Republicans have argued the action is beyond his authority and relations with the president will be poisoned.

There are about 11 million illegal immigrants in the US and this year children coming across the border prompted a crisis.
