What does President Obama's executive order on immigration mean to the Latino community?

President Obama followed up on last night's speech by signing a pair of memos associated with his executive action on immigration. The measures will let up to five million undocumented immigrants stay in the country temporarily. House Speaker John Boehner says the executive order is sabotaging President Obama's chances of passing other reforms that he wants. Speaker Boehner even said this will damage the presidency itself. Univision and Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos spoke with Anderson and said the President was pushed to take this action by Latino groups, but also by the inaction of Republicans.
