On July 16, a Federal judge in Texas declared the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) illegal and ordered the agency to halt the processing of all new applications. The Biden Administration said it would appeal the decision, but has declined to seek an immediate order staying it. This decision will impact the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people. It could also have lasting effects on our immigration system.
Join UCLA Law for an important conversation about the future of DACA and what this decision means for immigration policy going forward.
