On this week's Mass Ave podcast, Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow in the Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, discusses the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Von Spakovsky clears up some common misconceptions about the program, and why at its core DACA and its formation was unconstitutional. He also comments on what Trump's recent announcement ending the program means from a legislative and constitutional standpoint.
