The decision by President Obama to stop the expulsion of immigrants who came to the U.S. as children is being praised by U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, D-Ky., as a solution Congress should adopt.

From Yarmuth's office:

“As a supporter of the DREAM Act, I applaud the president's decision and am glad to see renewed pressure on Congress to address critical immigration reforms that will benefit our country.

Young people who came to the United States through no choice of their own, and who have abided our laws, should have the opportunity to stay here, use the education this country has provided, and become productive members of our society.”
