What the demise of DACA means for employers
from The National Law Review
Absent congressional action, the Trump administration's decision to wind down the DACA program will end the work authorization of DACA beneficiaries. In a decision announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Trump administration rescinded the memorandum that created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Concurrently, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will begin a six-month winding-down of the DACA program, which was created in 2012 and through which approximately 800,000 beneficiaries have qualified for employment authorization in the U.S.
