On June 18, in a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court ruled against the Trump administration's endeavor to rescind Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California and upheld the immigration policy, at least for now. However. President Trump's response on Twitter to the ruling has shown that he intends to work around the SCOTUS decision.
Phillip Greer, CEO of Best Lawyers, moderates a panel of three immigration law attorneys to discuss what this ruling entails and the future of DACA.
