Andres Correa Appears in Al Día Interview over Supreme Court Hearing on DACA

The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments over whether to keep the program, Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals, known as DACA. The Trump administration wants to end the program that allows recipients temporary protection from deportation. LCPH partner Andrés Correa told the Dallas Morning News Spanish-language newspaper, Al Día, that he believes there is still hope if the Supreme Court ends DACA. “I think that there is still hope because the general public supports these young people; it’s a country that really gives opportunities, so people do support the program. I think there is hope, but it’s going to be a long and uncertain road. And, unfortunately, the help that these young people need in order to study is needed today,” he said. 

Spanish quote: “Yo creo que sí hay esperanza porque el público en general apoyan a estos jóvenes; es un país que realmente da oportunidades, así que sí lo apoya la gente. Yo creo que sí hay esperanza, pero va a ser un camino largo y muy incierto. Y lamentablemente la ayuda que necesitan estos jóvenes para estudiar es hoy día”, dijo.
