DACA will continue after the Supreme Court rejected an effort by the Trump Administration to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
The program was established in an executive order by President Obama in 2012 — after Congress had repeatedly failed to pass the DREAM Act. DACA grants temporary legal status to people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children before June 2007.
We hear from local DACA recipient and Brandeis student, Elias Rosenfeld, on his reaction to the decision. We also hear analysis from WBUR reporter Shannon Dooling and Nancy Gertner, WBUR's legal analyst, a retired federal judge, and a senior lecturer at Harvard Law School.

This segment aired on June 18, 2020.
