SCOTUS Deep Dive: DACA Hits High Court (PODCAST)

Oct. 28, 2019, 8:55 AM

The Obama-era program for Dreamers will finally have its day in the U.S. Supreme Court on Nov. 12, when we may get a better sense of whether President Trump’s efforts to undo the program will survive high court scrutiny.

On this Deep Dive episode of “Cases and Controversies,” Bloomberg Law reporters Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin break down the legal saga surrounding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that’s granted temporary protections to hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.

Kimberly and Jordan also interview a lawyer—himself a DACA recipient— who signed onto a brief challenging the Trump administration’s move to undo Barack Obama’s executive action.

Hosts: Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin

Guest: Jose Magaña-Salgado

Producer: RJ Jewell
