The Biden administration just got bad news from a federal judge.
According to Fox News, the judge “ordered the Biden administration to stop all applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, ruling that the Obama-era program was illegal – dealing a blow to the Biden administration’s efforts to protect the program.”
That’s the end of the DACA program. Barring an unlikely overturning by the Supreme Court, the decision is likely to stay in place.
Per Fox New:
DACA was established under the Obama administration in 2012 and granted protection from deportation and work permits to illegal immigrants who came to the country as minors. Approximately 700,000 are estimated to have been granted protection under the program, and hundreds of thousands more are deemed eligible.
“DACA would grant lawful presence and work authorization to over a million people for whom Congress had made no provision and has consistently refused to make such a provision,” said the judge.
