The White House announced a plan last week to extend Medicaid and Affordable Care Act healthcare coverage to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival recipients.
Background: The Biden administration published a regulation to “preserve and fortify” DACA in August. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals is weighing the legality of the regulation after it ruled in October that the Obama administration did not follow proper procedures in creating DACA in 2012.
Currently, the Department of Homeland Security continues to adjudicate renewal applications (both DACA and employment authorization) and advance parole requests for existing DACA recipients; the agency remains prohibited from granting initial DACA requests and accompanying requests for employment authorization. Given the uncertainty around the litigation, individuals who are eligible to renew their DACA and related employment authorization are urged to do so as soon as possible.
BAL will continue to monitor the ongoing litigation and will provide updates on important developments related to DACA. For more information, visit BAL’s DACA Resource Center here.
