DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is an Obama-era policy that granted protected legal status to undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children. But this week, the 5th Circuit court in New Orleans, La. declared DACA to be illegal.
The court allowed current recipients to reapply, keeping the status of the program unchanged, but the future of it uncertain.
Reset hears from an advocate and DACA recipient for their reactions.
GUESTS: Erendira Rendon, vice president of immigrant justice at The Resurrection Project
