U-S Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh Could Play Important Role in Shaping the Future of U-S Immigration Policy

Newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh will likely play a major role in shaping U.S. immigration policy….including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program known as DACA.
