Supreme Court-Immigration

The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard arguments challenging a pair of President Obama’s executive orders that deferred action against undocumented immigrants. One USF anthropologist has spent a lot of time speaking to people on both sides of the Texas-Mexico border, including in the district that challenged the President’s orders. We’ll talk to her about the case and what it means for Florida on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
