▪ The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was enacted via an executive order when it failed to pass Congress.

▪ President Joe Biden, in a statement, stated that the Justice Department would appeal Hanen’s ruling.

▪ Biden also said the Department of Homeland Security would soon issue a new regulation intended to strengthen DACA’s legal standing.

▪ Biden stated, “Yesterday’s federal court ruling is deeply disappointing,” adding, “While the court’s order does not now affect current DACA recipients, this decision nonetheless relegates hundreds of thousands of young immigrants to an uncertain future.”
