Politicians: Obama moving too slowly on immigration

Updated: Monday, July 7 2014, 02:55 PM EDT

Washington – Politicians from both sides of the aisle said President Obama is not doing enough to deal with immigration issues. The administration says it’s working within “the confines of the law”.

There are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States and there’s a focus on the youngest who are coming across the border illegally.

An estimated 60 to 80 thousand children will come to the U.S. without parents this year.

The U.S. Homeland Security Secretary says the administration can work within the law to fix the immigration system, like speeding up deportation for adults coming across the border.

In Texas, a state impacted so greatly by illegal immigration, both Republicans and Democrats are saying the President is responding too slowly.
