Context for CUs as Supreme Court Rules on 'DACA' Case

U.S. Supreme Court building

As the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Thursday in a 5-to-4 decision that President Donald Trump had illegally ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, some credit unions may be looking for insight.

Pablo DeFilippi, senior vice president of membership and networking engagement at Inclusiv, said that there should not be any major changes for credit unions since they have always had the authority to provide financial services to everyone in their fields of membership, regardless of immigration status.

“The main implication is that credit unions can continue to employ young professionals that are DACA recipients,” DeFilippi said. “That’s certainly been a concern from a human resources perspective."

The DACA program has shielded nearly 700,000 young undocumented immigrants from deportation.
