Here are some of the immigration news items we are tracking this week:

Two thousand of the 55,000 people with their DACA applications live in Washington state. While USCIS is still accepting new DACA applications, approval cannot be granted until the Supreme Court hands down a decision on the program.
Claudio Rojas, an immigrant rights advocate, appeared in a movie called The Infiltrators, a movie about an immigration detention center. Rojas was invited to introduce the movie at the Miami Film Festival in 2019, and was soon detained and deported. ICE has denied that they retaliated against Rojas.
