Washington, D.C. — As the legal battle continues in the lawsuit over the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s deferred action directives—known as DACA and DAPA—the Center for American Progress will host a call to highlight the perspectives of members of Congress and states that have filed briefs in support of the directives.

In addition, CAP released today a new, original analysis of the estimated economic and fiscal benefits from the deferred-action policies over the next 5 years and 10 years. These benefits stand in direct contrast to the claims made by the plaintiff states in the lawsuit.

Please join CAP for this press call on Thursday, April 2, at 3:30 p.m. ET.
