President Barack Obama will announce his executive actions on immigration on Thursday at 8 p.m. Eastern Time, the White House said Wednesday.

The president’s long-anticipated announcement will be streamed online at WhiteHouse.gov/Immigration-Action, White House spokesman Josh Earnest wrote in a blog post.

Then, as TPM reported earlier, Obama will deliver a full address in Las Vegas on Friday about the steps he intends to take.

“The Senate passed a bipartisan bill more than 500 days ago, and while the country waits for House Republicans to vote, the President will act — like the Presidents before him — to fix our immigration system in the ways that he can,” Earnest wrote.
