Thousands Of Immigration Advocates Take To The SCOTUS Steps To #FightForFamilies

On Monday, the United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments for United States v. Texas, a case that will determine the fate of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA). Countless of Twitter users are using the hashtag  #FightForFamilies to express their support for two programs that could grant deportation relief to millions.

Supporters flooded the steps of the Supreme Court building in favor of DAPA and DACA+.

The court’s ruling could affect as many as 4 million people.

At the heart of the case is the chance to keep families together by giving the parents of kids like these relief from deportation.

There are specific criteria for qualifying for DAPA. Among these are having no major criminal record and having a child living legally in the United States.

Seriously, the Supreme Court steps are LIT today.

Of course, Bernie Sanders was the first one to say something about the case.

Hillary Clinton published a short video highlighting someone who would be affected if DAPA is struck down.

Are there anti-DAPA supporters? Sure, but it looks like pro-DAPA is a stronger chorus on the SCOTUS steps.

The Supreme Court is expected to hand down their decision on the case as early as June. Until then, we wait and listen to anything the SCOTUS justices might say.
