Millions await new US immigration measures

Undocumented migrants may be protected from deportation and allowed to remain in the US under proposed law.

    Millions of undocumented migrants who have lived in the US for at least five years may be protected from deportation and allowed to remain in the country.

    An estimated 11 million migrants are believed to live in the US, but the new measures might only spare five million people from deportation.
