“Last week, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John Kelly announced to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that the government may decline to defend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — which deferred removal of over 750,000 undocumented young adults — against a looming legal challenge threatened by a number of states. Now, more than ever, a legislative solution is the only chance of protection for America’s Dreamers.” (07/31/17)
