IMMIGRATION-DEFERRED ACTION

PHOENIX _ Roughly 18 percent of the 660,000 people enrolled in Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, are between 31 and 38 years old _ much older than the young college students usually associated with the Obama-era program that shields them from deportation and allows them to work. There are particularly high stakes for this older generation of DACA recipients as the U.S. Supreme Court takes up arguments in a case that could end the program: Children, mortgages, car payments and other financial responsibilities that come along with becoming a 30-something. The high court will hear arguments Nov. 12 in the legal challenges against President Donald Trump’s attempt to end the program. A decision is expected next spring. By Astrid Galvan.
