Event Summary

The Center for Immigration Studies hosted a livestream to discuss today's ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States in Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California. The high court held that the Department of Homeland Security acted unlawfully in terminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The majority ruled there was no discriminatory intent on the part of the executive, but that the DHS memorandum that rescinded DACA "failed to consider the conspicuous issues of whether to retain forbearance and what if anything to do about the hardship to DACA recipients.” So what should the executive branch and/or the legislative branch do next?
