What Did Obama's November Executive Order On Immigration Do?

Perhaps the most important act of the Executive Order was to give undocumented immigrants more time to have their deportations delayed and more time to obtain work permits.

There were, in addition, several other highlights to the Order.

Parents of US Citizens and residents will be able to apply for work permits.
More immediate family members of US citizens will be allowed to obtain Provisional Waivers of Unlawful Presence.
Foreign graduates and highly-skilled laborers will have more opportunities available to them.
