Recently, I was one of thousands of people who gathered outside the Supreme Court in support of two changes to American immigration policy. The high court was hearing opening arguments in the challenge brought by Texas and more than 20 other states to two policies implemented by President Obama.
The two polices are: The Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA), announced in 2014 and an expansion to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which started in 2012. DAPA would protect parents of U.S. Citizens and U.S. permanent residents from deportation and allow them to apply for a three-year work permit. DACA allows children who enter the U.S. before their 16th birthday to qualify for a renewable two-year work permit, amd protects them from deportation.
