Biden administration moves to formalize DACA and shield it from legal challenges
Biden’s rule to preserve DACA. The Biden administration announced a new rule last week to codify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. T
he program was created during the Obama administration in 2012 to provide eligible young adults who arrived in the U.S.
As children to work and study without the threat of deportation.
Immigration and legal advocacy groups believe that this new regulation to prevent challenges to DACA does not go far enough and are calling on the U.S.
Congress to legislate a path to citizenship.
The new rule on DACA will take effect October 31 and is intended to improve the program’s chances of surviving legal challenges.
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.)
