Professor Cooper Comments for Associated Press on DACA and Court Action

Professor Holly S. Cooper, co-director of the UC Davis School of Law Immigration Law Clinic, commented for the Associated Press on lawsuits filed this week by 15 states seeking to block President Trump’s rescission of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The success of the lawsuits could hinge on whether or not the states can show the president took this action out of animus towards Latinos and others who will be most affected.

“Given his past history, pretty explicit statements against people of color and immigrants and people of certain religions, you have a lot of evidence to work with to make this case,” Cooper said.
