US Supreme Court Deadlocks on DAPA & DACA+, Community Vows to Keep Fighting

MILWAUKEE - Today, the US Supreme Court deadlocked in a 4-4 split on President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, leaving in place a lower court ruling blocking the measures. The programs, known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), would have provided protection from deportation and 3-year work permits to some 5 million undocumented parents of US Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents, as well as undocumented people who came to the US before the age of 16.
