Uncertainty, mental health issues loom over DACA recipients awaiting high court decision
Thousands of people are still awaiting a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Waiting from the decision only made worse by the current health crisis.
A potential verdict on DACA could come at any time with the Supreme Court term cycle expected to end in June.
Xochitl Hinojosa, a social service provider with La Unión Del Pueblo Entero (LUPE), says a mental health crisis among DACA recipients is prompting a rise of requests for resources. She says calls have increased since emergency orders were issued in late March.
Hinojosa explained many recipients are also trying to reapply in haste before a potential verdict could dismantle their chances. Anyone who needs help can contact LUPE at 956-787-2233.
