Important – DACA Update

Recently, the law for DACA was codified.

Read: ALERT: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Final Rule (Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals)

To codify something means that we are making a formal organizational process within the code for that rule or regulation. It’s helpful in a lot of ways, especially to make sure that other governmental bodies or legislative bodies don’t pass something that is maybe redundant, does not meet the requirements, or is inconsistent with a federal codified law.

That codified law went into effect without much change to the actual regulation as it has been. It will go into effect on October 31st of this year. Understand that that does not impact the current ban or injunction right now on new requests for DACA.

There was a ruling for an injunction on that. That’s still in place and we’re still waiting on that. We’re also waiting on the legality of DACA. There is a court case in the fifth circuit for that.
