'We won': DACA recipients overwhelmed by surprise Supreme Court victory over Trump

‘We won’: DACA recipients overwhelmed by surprise Supreme Court victory over Trump

Originally published by USA Today

Just as she'd done every day that the Supreme Court released its opinions, Itzel Hernandez sat down at her computer in her home in central New Jersey on Thursday morning and repeatedly clicked refresh to look for the court's ruling on DACA.

Finally, just after 10 a.m., there it was. Hernandez, like so many other DACA recipients across the country, started speed-reading the decision. It appeared that the court was ruling in her favor, that President Donald Trump and his administration were being shot down in their attempt to end the program.

"I was like, 'Wait, I don't think I'm reading this correctly,'" said Hernandez, 26.

Then she saw a tweet from a legal expert declaring that DACA had survived.
