The Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals program, commonly known as DACA, extends to all illegal immigrants who were brought into the United States as children. This program was set up in order to delay deportation for these members of the youth so that they became eligible for work permits.
DACA policy was given legal backing by turning it into a regulatory law. This action was carried on by the Department of Homeland Security to protect the children of immigrants by giving them a fair chance at employment.
In order to be a beneficiary of this policy, the immigrants in question are to have a clean record devoid of felons and misdemeanors.
EXCLUSIVE — The Biden administration has finalized a rule to transform the DACA policy for more than 600,000 immigrant “Dreamers” into a federal regulation in an attempt to protect the program from legal challenges.

DACA’s legal status was given an incentive by officials of the federal department by replacing the policy that existed a decade ago with a new set of federal regulations.
Mr. Alejandro, who serves as the secretary to Homeland Security has stated that the footing on the matter is even stronger now.
The 46th President of the United States, Mr. Biden, had earlier made a statement on the DACA policy. He stated that the DREAMERS, who are the beneficiaries of the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act, contribute a lot to the nation.
Mr. President stated that children of immigrants also join the military and serve the nation. They have known the USA to be their home as well.
