TODAY: DACA recipients on Mid-Day Podcast discussing uncertainty before Nov. 12 oral arguments

The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments in the legal case flowing from former President Barack Obama’s creation of the federal DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program and President Donald Trump’s recent decision to end the program.

In the cases of Department of Homeland Security vs. Regents of the University of California, Trump vs. NAACP, and McAleenan v. Vidal, the core question before the High Court later this month will be:
“Whether courts can review the decision to end DACA; and, if so, whether the decision to end DACA was lawful.” 

A podcast scheduled for TODAY (Sunday, November 3) will include two Oklahomans who are recipients of DACA status (one a charter school teacher) teacher and a national advocate (also a DACA recipient) active in efforts to support the program.
