El Paso nurse and DACA recipient relieved after Supreme Court decision protecting program

An El Paso nurse is among more than 643,000 DACA recipients breathing a sigh of relief after the Supreme Court ruling allowing the program to continue. Josue Tayub, 36, is originally from the state of Yucatan in Mexico. He works in the intensive care unit at an El Paso hospital where he has cared for both victims of the Walmart mass shooting in August and now COVID-19 patients. KTEP’s Angela Kocherga talked to him about the Supreme Court decision on DACA that protects him and thousands of others in the program from deportation – for now.
