Last week, a walkout was held in support of DACA ahead of the case, which considers DACA’s implementation and whether President Donald Trump’s administration has the power to end the Obama-era initiative that allows some undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to be protected from deportation and eligible for renewable two-year work permits.
More than 100 people marched in the walkout on OU’s campus as part of the “Home is Here” campaign.
The Supreme Court began hearings on the case at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
