President orders review of deportation policies

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - President Obama is ordering a review of deportation policies.

The White House says the review will look to see if immigration enforcement can be more humane.

The president met with leaders of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Thursday.

The president told lawmakers he's deeply concerned about the pain families feel when they are separated because of the broken immigration system.

The announcement comes as immigrant rights activists, frustrated by the lack of progress in Congress, have been pressuring the president to halt all deportations.
