Students explore the Supreme Court's ruling protecting DACA, discuss the youth-led movement fighting to advance immigrants' rights, and consider what comes next.
In two readings and discussion, students explore the meaning and history of DACA, including the social movement activism that won DACA during the Obama years and prospects for future action.
In this activity, students watch a video about responses to the Trump administration’s decision to roll back this Obama–era program, which has allowed young undocumented immigrants to stay in the country. Students then read and discuss a variety of opinions about the decision.
This brief activity gives students a chance to share and reflect on the the Trump administration's recent decision to end the DACA program, which has protected many young immigrants from deportation.
