What are the Changes? 
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced that it will issue a notice of proposed rulemaking to protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The agency’s announcement is a formal notice of its intent to “preserve and fortify” the DACA program. It was released by Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, who stated that the announcement is an important step in preserving the DACA program. The notice follows, and is consistent with, a memo issued by the Biden administration in January 2021 to preserve and protect DACA.
The DACA program protects more than 640,000 individuals from deportation who were brought to the United States unlawfully as children. DACA has been the subject of extensive litigation since its implementation.
Looking Ahead 
Updates regarding the DACA program will be provided as available.
