authorities will target undocumented felons and what the administration calls border crossers. the rest of the undocumented inn gra immigrants take on lower status. >> i want to pass a legislation. the day i sign that bill into law, the actions i take will no longer be necessary. meanwhile, don't let a disagreement over a single issue be a deal breaker on every issue. that's now how our democracy works. congress shouldn't shutdown the government again because we disagree on this. americans are tired of gridlock. what our country needs from us right now is a common purpose. a higher purpose. >> reporter: after the speech, immigration protesters gathered outside the white house mainly in support of the president's plan. people were chants obama amigo. there was one incident.

get a break. >> i worry about everybody. about him doing it by himself like that. that is not really kosher. >> you mean the president taking executive action to do this? >> right. i think it should be done through the house and congress. >> i have to admire the people here because they are very bilingual and helpful. >> reporter: the pew research according to the executive order, it would benefit 2.8 million parents with u.s. children. parents who have lived in the country for five years or more, it would benefit about 700,000 parents with u.s. born children over the age of 18 who have also lived in the country for more than five years. it would add another 235,000 young immigrants brought to the country as children by their parents.
more or less, about 3.8 million people would benefit. >> let me ask you something. if you defer deportation, does he put them on a track for a green card? as the president said before, you pay a fine and you get in line with people who have been waiting legally. >> reporter: that's what the president has indicated in multiple interviews. the reality here is since this is only an executive order, a new president or a new congress can then take action and undo whatever the president does. it is an open question. >> the regulation of the borders and immigration system sits solely in the congress. all right. thank you, rafael. breaking overnight. ferguson police officer darren wilson reportedly in talks to resign from the department. according to sources, wilson maintains he did nothing wrong the day he shot and killed

flooding and rain. look at the temperatures. if you are in new york city, from 30s to 50s by sunday. skipping ahead to monday, 67 degrees in new york city. what does this mean for buffalo? same problem here. temperatures are rising quickly. 61 degrees there on monday. the flood threat will be the newest threat as we go forward in time. it is not just the flooding from the temperatures. rain is expected to make its way through. you have all this snow. you want it to melt. you don't want it to melt this quickly at once. that is the concern as high pressure settles in. you want to keep in mind through the south, a threat of severe weather through saturday and sunday. all thanks to the low pulling the moisture from the gulf. we have a threat of isolated tornadoes through the weekend. that is the other side of the equation as we watch through the weekend. honestly. terrifying. the weight alone on the snow and the rain on the back side. >> all right. good luck, buffalo. they will be happy when

estimated 3.8 million people. mainly parents with u.s. born children under the age of 18 who lived in the country for more than five years. christine, back to you. >> it brings up the numbers. like the pew numbers. you look at the numbers and you have more than 6 million people not eligible for any relief here. you still then have this sort of class of non-citizens with no rights. doesn't necessarily fix a broken immigration system. it is band aids on a broken immigration system. >> reporter: the president says he is taking a look at the practical side of it. it is impractical to deport 11 million people. you can at least do something about it. as critics say, illegal is illegal. if they came to this country without permission, they should be turned away. christine. >> a bureaucratic mess to sort through all of these people to figure out who gets what kind of relief.
