WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama has decided to delay taking action on immigration reform until after November congressional elections because the issue had become a threat to his fellow Democrats, a White House official said on Saturday.
Obama had promised in June to announce his decision by the end of summer, but Democrats worried that any executive actions taken without congressional approval could hurt them in November as they struggle to retain control of the U.S. Senate. Republicans already control the House of Representatives.
