The U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 ruling has upheld the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which offers temporary protections to the more than 700,000 immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. The Trump administration sought to terminate DACA in 2017, but the court's decision provides temporary respite for the immigrants known as Dreamers. IU experts are available to comment on the ruling.

Political Polarization: Often Not as Bad as We Think
Columbia University, Mailman School of Public Health
