Republicans vow to fight 'illegal' Obama immigration plan

Members of the Coalition for Humane Immigration Rights of Los Angeles watch November 20, 2014 in Los Angeles, California, as US President Barack Obama delivers his nationally televised announcement on immigration reformRepublican reaction was swift and savage Thursday to President Barack Obama's unilateral plan to bring millions of undocumented non-citizens out of the shadows and make them eligible for work permits.
