On Thursday night President Obama laid out his plan for immigration reform — announcing that he will be signing an executive order that would help up to 5 million undocumented immigrants gain legal status.

Congressman Joesph Kennedy III, a Democrat who represents Massachusetts' 4th district, says he supports the president's executive action, but says it is "not a substitute for the comprehensive immigration reform demanded by the majority of the American people."

WBUR's Bob Oakes spoke with Kennedy this morning about the president's move to act without the support of Congress.
