House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, who has been a visible advocate for DACA recipients, sat down with CQ Roll Call to walk through President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), his own role and the course he hopes Congress will chart in the wake of the court's ruling.

The Supreme Court heard arguments on Nov. 12 on efforts to repeal DACA and whether or not the Trump Administration's action was lawful.
