Hear reactions from former Immigration MIC guests Eliana Fernandez, Alejandro Flores, and Damaris!
(From CNBC) "The Supreme Court ruled against President Donald Trump on Thursday in a set of cases over his effort to end the Obama-era immigration program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.
The ruling will protect hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who have been shielded from deportation and allowed to receive work permits under the program. There were about 700,000 DACA recipients at the time Trump ordered the program to wind down in September 2017.
The 5-4 opinion was authored by Chief Justice John Roberts, a conservative, and joined by the court’s liberals, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Roberts reasoned that the Trump administration’s termination of the program was “arbitrary and capricious,” in violation of federal law that governs administrative procedure."
*Immigration MIC is still on hiatus with my work on Momentum: A Race Forward Podcast, but I wanted to make this quick episode to commemorate this landmark moment for our immigration/ podcast community.
