WATCH President Obama's immigration speech at 7 p.m.

(KFVS) -

President Obama could announce his executive action on immigration during a speech planned for Thursday at 7 p.m.

The plan is expected to shield as many as five million undocumented immigrants from deportation.

It's also expected to expand worker visas for certain job sectors and to have U.S. immigration officials focus their deportation efforts on undocumented immigrants who are convicted criminals.

Republicans say the president's use of executive order is creating a rift between political parties.
