Obama heckled on ending deportation of illegal migrants


US President Barack Obama was heckled by a reporter as he announced a new plan that would end deportation and offer work permits to young illegal immigrants.

Speaking at the White House, Mr Obama said the plan would give a degree of "relief and hope" to young people who are American "in every way" except on paper.

Mr Obama and his Republican opponent Mitt Romney are courting Hispanic voters in key states ahead of November's election.
