In a video released by the White House, President Obama previewed his upcoming announcement on his planned executive actions on immigration reform.

Obama confirmed reports that he would announce his plans on Thursday evening followed by an event at a high school in Las Vegas to highlight his executive action.

“Everybody agrees that our immigration system is broken, unfortunately Washington has allowed the problem to fester for too long,” Obama said in the video, filmed with the president sitting on the desk in the Oval Office. “So what I am going to be laying out is the things that I can do with my lawful authority as president to make the system work better.”
