If Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is correct, President Barack Obama's delayed executive action on immigration may be coming sooner than expected.  

During the California Democrat's weekly press conference on Thursday, Pelosi asked for those affected by the immigration issue to be hopeful that "by Thanksgiving or Christmas" there'd be "more security in their lives."  

Pelosi said she was "confident" action would be taken, and she said such an action had the strong support of Democrats.  

Obama recently announced he would delay promised executive action, which is expected to defer the deportations of as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants, until after the November elections.
