DENVER (AP) -- Immigrant rights groups are planning to outline the Obama Administration's new deportation policy.

The six-week pilot project in Denver is part of a policy change announced in June by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

The new policy being outlined Thursday would allow illegal immigrants facing deportation who have no criminal record and meet certain criteria to be classified as low priority for immigration enforcement and have their cases closed.
