DACA

Important Update

On July 16, 2021, US District Judge Andrew Hanen issued his ruling in the legal challenge to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program brought by the State of Texas and several other states. On his rule, Judge Hanen blocked the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from approving new DACA applications, barring tens of thousands of new DACA applicants from getting work authorizations and protections from deportation.
