According to reports, President Biden plans to take executive action to protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) “Dreamers” from removal if the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals rules against DACA, which appears imminent. Such an order may take the form of allowing DACA recipients to remain in the United States if they pose no public safety or security threat.

A longer-term solution would require Congress to pass legislation, which is unlikely in the near term. Almost 700,000 DACA recipients could lose their work authorization otherwise.
