A Panel on the Successful Defense of DACA

The Supreme Court of the United States, in a 5-4 ruling, struck down the Trump Administration’s attempt to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which provides individuals who were brought to the U.S. as children the opportunity to live and work legally in United States, in June 2020. For a panel that will discuss this decision, join the Harvard Law ACS Student Chapter in welcoming, Robert Long, Alexander Berengaut, Megan Crowley and Jeffrey Davidson.
