DACA Still in Limbo
August 8, 2018 at 9:56AM
Less than a week after a court in Washington, D.C. ruled that the Trump administration didn't have the right to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, seven states filed a lawsuit to end the program that allows around 800,000 young people to work and live without fear of deportation. Today, a federal court in Houston will consider the lawsuit brought by Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, South Carolina and West Virginia. Judge Andrew Hanen, overseeing the case, is well known for blocking the Obama administration from expanding DACA in 2015.
