Answer: 
Obama has not reformed the immigration system. Only Congress can do that. But the Republican controlled Congress has refused. What President Obama did was to use his lawful authority as president to offer DREAMers and undocumented parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents an opportunity to apply for a reprieve from deportation on a case-by-case basis. Many studies show that President Obama's deferred action guidance will add billions in tax revenue and help boost the economy. It's also the right thing to do. American families should not have to go to be every night worrying that a loved-one will be deported. So, yes, it's a very good policy for the United States. Hopefully, at some point Congress will do its job and reform the immigration system.
