The agency that runs the deportation process obviously has a finite number of resources. As with any job with more stuff to do than people to do it, priorities have to be set. And it was decided that resources would not be used to process and deport the people meeting the criterea (brought here as a child, etc.) That doesn't require legislative action. It is within the discretion of the agency and the president.
They aren't just using the immigration equivalent of prosecutorial discretion here. They're actually diverting these scarce resources to process waivers.
