Biden administration moves to formalize DACA and shield it from legal challenges
The Biden administration announced a new rule last week to codify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The new rule on DACA will take effect October 31. President Barack Obama implemented DACA in 2012 as an executive order, allowing eligible young adults who came to the U.S. as children to work and study without fear of deportation.
Biden’s regulation aims to improve DACA’s chances of surviving legal battles, but without Congress it’s not a permanent solution. (Not automatically expanded because 2 MB is too large. You can expand it anyway or open it in a new window.)
