Federal Judge Andrew S. Hanen ruled Wednesday that the Biden administration’s regulation protecting Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is illegal.
BAL Analysis: Judge Hanen’s ruling was unwelcome news for the immigration advocacy community, though not a surprise following his earlier ruling against DACA. The Biden administration is expected to appeal the ruling, and most observers believe the case will eventually land before the U.S. Supreme Court. Current DACA beneficiaries can continue to renew their DACA and DACA-related Employment Authorization Documents, though first-time requests cannot be approved. BAL will continue to follow DACA litigation and will provide updates as information becomes available.
