Undocumented Latino Youth In Charlotte And North Carolina

Recently, the Supreme Court deadlocked over President Obama’s immigration plan to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation. It was described as the biggest legal defeat of the president’s administration and the result could reach into the lives of many of the 300,000 people who are undocumented but living here. We examine the impact this has already had for local Latino youth and what it means for their future.
