President Barack Obama will announce the steps he will take to protect millions of immigrants who are illegally in the country from deportation Thursday night at 7 p.m. CST, despite Republicans saying it's a move that will poison his relations with the new Congress.
Obama said everyone agrees that the immigration system is broken, but that Washington has let the problem "fester for too long."
He says he'll spell out things he can do as president "to make the system better" -- and that he'll also work with Congress toward as "bipartisan, comprehensive bill that can solve the entire problem."
ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox are not planning to interrupt programming to air the president's announcment, but KSAT 12 will air Obama's address live on MeTV channel 12.2 at 7 p.m.
KSAT 12 News anchors Steve Spriester and Ursula Pari will be standing by to introduce the announcement.
