The Supreme Court passed a landmark decision on Thursday, blocking the Trump Administration's attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). The decision allows over 800,000 DACA recipients, also known as Dreamers, to remain in the country legally.
Dreamers are people who were brought to America as children by their undocumented parents. They have little connection to their homeland but are undocumented in the U.S, preventing them from numerous employment and educational opportunities.
Present Obama signed DACA via executive order in 2012.
