#ImmigrationAction: Where to watch President Obama’s Immigration Announcement


Since all the major networks have priorities more important than what could be a historic presidential announcement on immigration, I’m sharing a couple of links where you can watch el presidente.

President Obama will move forward with an Executive Action that could benefit up to 5 million undocumented immigrants out of the 11 million estimated to live in the country. Similar to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), this will be a temporary fix that won’t provide any path to citizenship or residency.

First, the White House will be streaming live on its web site starting at 8 p.m. EST.

Obviously, C-Span will also transmit via internet the presidential message on its page.

The only major network that will air the… wait, why am I writing this in English??? OK, la única cadena que le da su lugar al mensaje presidencial es Univision, que transmitirá en vivo el mensaje de Obama.
