The IP Weighs in on Supreme Court Decision

WHOI news channel in Peoria interviewed The Immigration Project’s Executive Director, Jasmine McGee, on the impact of the Supreme Court’s decision on Obama’s executive actions. In regards to the effect of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals blocking Obama’s executive orders on immigration, Jasmine states, “There is a lot of fear coming forward to declare or apply for certain relief… That is something we will definitely be concerned with if it does go into effect. How do we reach out the community and advocate for them to apply?” As of now, there is no certainty of whether the Supreme Court will rule in favor of either side. The full story can be found here.
