Early this morning, news broke that President Obama and the Department of Homeland Security would be issuing a policy change that will stop the deportation of many young, undocumented immigrants and grant work permits to those who came to the US as children and have since led law-abiding lives.

The implications of this move are expansive, from touching the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people's lives to possibly playing a major role in the presidential election. As with any major news, social networking sites like twitter exploded in a flurry of responses to the administration's announcement. Check out some of the tweets below.
