In November 2014, the Obama administration announced the expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the creation of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program. The DAPA and expanded DACA programs, if implemented, would provide work authorization and temporary relief from deportation to roughly four million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. Texas and 25 other states, however, are challenging the programs, and the case, United States v. Texas, has made its way to the US Supreme Court.

In advance of the April 18th oral arguments before the Court, the Center for Migration Studies (CMS) hosted a dialogue on the case’s legal and policy implications on April 13th from 9:00am to 12:30pm at the law offices of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver, and Jacobson, LLP in Washington D.C.
