For Dreamers, Pressure Remains on Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Biden administration has finalized a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals regulation and plans to publish the final rule Tuesday.

 

The following is a quote from Laurence Benenson, Vice President of Policy and Advocacy at the National Immigration Forum:

 

“This rule is a positive step to protect hundreds of thousands of Dreamers, who contribute to our country in so many ways. But it is not a permanent solution. DACA continues to be under threat in the courts, and only Congress can provide the certainty of legislation.

 

“Dreamers are vital to our economy and communities. Certainty about their future should not volley between administrations and courts. Americans support solutions from Congress this year. Republicans and Democrats must act.”
