Biden Administration Preserves and Fortifies DACA

On August 24, 2022, DHS Secretary Mayorkas announced a final rule that will preserve and fortify Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The final rule is effective on October 31, 2022. This will allow for the maintenance of the current criteria for DACA and retains the same process to seek work authorization. Unfortunately, since July 16, 2021, an injunction has prohibited DHS for granting initial DACA requests under the final rule.
