Immigrants in Michigan a diverse group

DETROIT, Nov. 20, 2014 (AP): Experts say Michigan's population of immigrants living in the country without documentation is smaller but more diverse than elsewhere.

That means changes to U.S. immigration policy President Barack Obama announced on Thursday will affect more than just those who come from Latin American countries. That's the dominant community in many other states.

The largest group of those in Michigan without documentation comes from Mexico. But many also hail from India, Iraq, and China.

Obama announced plans to shield as many as 5 million immigrants from deportation. The broadest action stemming from his executive authority could extend protections to parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, as long as those parents have been in the country for five years.

As they have done since Obama became president, Republicans plan to fight the immigration reform actions.
