DHS Issues A Final Rule for DACA Recipients

DHS fortifies DACA. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas announced the Department has issued a final rule that will preserve and fortify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
Policy for certain eligible noncitizens who arrived in the U.S. as children,
Deferring their removal and allowing them to have a renewable, two-year work permit.
The rule will continue the DACA policy as it was announced in the 2012 Napolitano Memorandum,
And is based on longstanding USCIS practice.
The rule will maintain that DACA recipients should not be a priority for removal.
This announcement still recognizes that DACA is not a form of lawful status rather its recipients are considered “lawfully present” for certain purposes.
