US Supreme Court to Decide DACA Fate
00:02:36
The fate of about 800,000 young, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children is in the hands of nine Supreme Court justices. The court will decide if the Trump administration has the right to end the program, called DACA, which protects the young immigrants, known as dreamers, from deportation. VOA's Zlatica Hoke reports the U.S. high court heard arguments for both sides on Tuesday.
People rally outside the Supreme Court as oral arguments are heard in the case of President Trump's decision to end the Obama-era, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), Nov. 12, 2019, at the Supreme Court in Washington.
Nine-member court's decision expected by June, at the height of the 2020 presidential campaign
