U.S. Supreme Court to hear arguments on DACA


RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday on DACA.

President Trump moved to end the program and challenges to that decision have been making their way through the courts.

Stakeholders in the case have begun arriving in Washington, including the executive director of the National Immigration Law Center.

She argues the Trump administration did not provide a valid reason for ending the program.

“Every court that has looked at this issue has held that the administration arbitrarily and capriciously violated the administrative procedures act,” said Marielena Hincapie, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center.

The Trump administration argues DACA was never a legal program in the first place.

But something all sides seem to agree on, is that Congress needs to find a permanent solution to young undocumented immigrants.
