Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, CU Boulder experts are available for media interviews on next steps.

Violeta Chapin, professor and head of the Criminal and Immigration Defense Clinic at the University of Colorado Law School, can explain the court’s ruling that the Department of Homeland Security’s move to end DACA was “arbitrary and capricious.” She can also speak to what the administration might do to curb DACA going forward.

Ming Hsu Chen is an associate professor and faculty director of Colorado Law’s Immigration and Citizenship Law program. She can talk about how Congress, local governments and even universities can act proactively to protect so-called “Dreamers.” Her upcoming book “Pursuing Citizenship in the Enforcement Era” explores the everyday perspectives of people across the spectrum of becoming a U.S. citizen.
