DACA Information from Lexis with Points Contest

Jennifer Durkin, our Lexis representative just sent us great information on a current event topic in the law: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).  This is a great way to learn more about this issue, get to know Lexis and get a chance to win some points from Lexis.

Fifteen states have filed suit against President Trump and his administration for the decision to end the DACA program.  This decision has sparked a major legal debate.  Learn more about DACA and the lawsuit so you can be informed and win Lexis points (see below).

What is DACA?
DACA (from Wikipedia) is an immigration policy that allows certain illegal immigrants (often referred to as “dreamers” under the DREAM Act) who entered the country as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit.
