President Obama will be making a big statement on immigration Thursday night from the White House’s East Room. On Friday he will be going to Del Sol High School in Las Vegas to rally support. But major English language networks won’t be airing the announcement–CBS, NBC, ABC and Fox will all air their scheduled programming.
If you’re online, you can tune in to White House Live at 8 p.m. Eastern. If you’ve got cable, don’t worry, because MSNBC, CNN and Fox News will be airing the announcement. And, if you speak Spanish, you can tune in to Univision–which is postponing the Latin Grammys (Calle 13–who’s up for nine awards–will be performing, so you might want to stay tuned to Univision afterward!).
President Obama took to Facebook Wednesday to confirm his schedule:
It’s likely that the President’s move will potentially benefit nearly five million people on a temporary basis, without a pathway to citizenship. The president will also be seeking to expand security on the southern border.
