Dreamers Sue to Block Repeal of DACA

Six recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program – a remarkable group of plaintiffs who embody the American Dream and the powerful stories of nearly 800,000 “Dreamers” across the country – filed suit in federal court today to block the Trump Administration from ending the program.

The “Dreamers case” is the first lawsuit from DACA beneficiaries, each of whom would face potentially devastating consequences from the termination of DACA.
