Handcuffing ICE to Dream about Amnesty
President Obama in June of 2012 announced Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Jessica Vaughan, Center for Immigration Studies, discusses the consequences and implications of this "Dream Amnesty".
Vaughn discusses lawsuits against sheriffs across the country who try to enforce immigration law. She discusses interior immigration enforcement, and enforcement program components that the Obama administration has dismantled.
