US President Barack Obama has opted for Facebook as a platform to inform Americans about his executive actions on fixing the country’s “broken” immigration system.

The executive actions, to be announced on Thursday, is expected to benefit millions of the estimated 11 million undocumented workers.

According to Pew Research Center, those from neighbouring Mexico are to benefit the most as they account for the maximum number of illegal immigrants in the US.

There are an estimated 4, 50,000 illegal immigrants from India.

“Everybody agrees our immigration system is broken,” Obama said in a video posted yesterday.

The White House defended its decision to opt for Facebook to inform people about the coming announcement.
