Latest DACA Development: On September 28, 2021, the Biden administration published a notice of proposed rulemaking on deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA). This means the government is planning to issue formal rules in the form of regulations that will set forth who may benefit from DACA and how they may apply. The proposed rules issued with the notice are not yet in effect, but rather a proposal on which the public – including DACA recipients – may provide feedback.  Any changes to DACA as a result of the proposed rules will likely not happen for at least a few months. The government will announce final rules and a date those rules will be in effect in the future. The proposed rules are available here:
