Biden administration unveils new plan for young immigrants

Joe Biden

(AP) – The Biden administration has released a plan to shield hundreds of thousands of immigrants who came to the United States as young children from deportation.

It is the latest maneuver in a long-running drama over the legality of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The proposal seeks to satisfy concerns of a federal judge who ruled in July that the policy was illegal.

It takes on heightened importance as prospects for legislation have dimmed.

A Cornell University professors says there are no major changes and that it is an effort to “bulletproof” the policy from legal challenges.
