Louis DeSipio, a political science professor at the University of California, Irvine, said he was struck by Obama's comment that he is considering providing some sort of path to legal status for undocumented immigrants.

That program allows undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors to receive a two-year deferment from deportation, during which they receive work permits. "That has never really been what the White House has tried to do or what he has tried to do certainly in DACA," DeSipio said.
