Congressional Democrats File Supreme Court Amicus Briefs over DACA/ DAPA

Last week The Supreme court announced it will hear arguments on a case effecting the residency status of 5 million Immigrants. This week immigration reform advocates from all walks of life ranging from teachers to members of congress filed amicus briefs with the high court. The friends of the court briefs demonstrate a wide range of support for president Obama's DACA and DAPA programs opposed by the state of Texas and 22 other republican dominated states which oppose granting amnesty for millions of undocumented youth and parents of children in the country legally. Pacifica's Mike Kohn files this report.
