Federal Judge Orders Biden Administration To End New DACA Applications

A federal judge on Friday ordered the Biden administration to stop all applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, after a coalition of states sued and claimed that the Obama-era program was illegal.

Approximately 800,000 are estimated to have been granted protection under the program, and hundreds of thousands more are deemed eligible.
