S1E3 - Todos con DACA
Play • 32 min

For the past few years, the current administration has attempted to terminate the Obama-era program Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which shields undocumented immigrants who came to the US as children from deportation.

On November 14, 2020, New York Attorney General Letitia James ruled that Chad Wolf was not lawfully serving as Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security when he signed rules that limited the number of applications and renewals for DACA, therefore invalidating his suspension to the program.

Across the nation, DREAMers and immigrant rights advocates celebrated this ruling. But what does this ruling really mean particularly taking into account the results of the recent elections?
