In a video posted to Facebook, President Barack Obama said he will announce his immigration executive actions Thursday night and speak again in Las Vegas on Friday at Del Sol High School. Obama says in the video he will lay out what he can do with his “lawful authority” as president while still working with Congress on an immigration overhaul. Speaker John A. Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel, however, said taking action on his own would “ruin” chances of getting anything done.
