Biden Opens DACA To More Illegals, Already At 800,000

At a glance

  • In July 2021, a U.S. District Court Judge of Texas ruled that DACA was illegal because it was not a formal rule. While the ruling did not strip away DACA recipients of their benefits, it prevented new ones from signing up for the program.
  • However, with the final DACA rule in place, the Biden administration will be able to accept new applicants.
  • Since the beginning of the program, DACA has allowed over 800,000 young people to remain in the country.
