Minn. Dreamer reacts to Supreme Court decision on DACA

The Supreme Court's Thursday decision on DACA is not a long-term fix – still, many Dreamers are celebrating the ruling as a temporary reprieve.

In Minnesota, DACA has shielded an estimated 5,600 young residents who were brought to the U.S. illegally. One of them is Eliphaz Omote, who came here at age 10 from Kenya. MPR News host Phil Picardi talked with Omote about his response to the court’s ruling.
