The dream is alive:' Florida, national officials react to Supreme Court DACA ruling
It was a historic and powerful day on Capitol Hill as the U.S. Supreme Court rejected President Trumps efforts to end protections for young immigrants under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program Thursday. The program covers people who have been in the United States since they were children and are in the country illegally. According to the AP, young immigrants will retain their protection from deportation and their authorization to work in the United States. The American Dream means that if you play by the rules and work hard, you can make it in America, and Im thrilled to see the Supreme Court agree, Demings said in a statement. On Monday, the Supreme Court also ruled that its illegal to fire people because theyre gay or transgender.
