No new DACA; Renewal ok

Lucky for those with DACA and those with pending applications to renew DACA! Not lucky for those who have not ever applied for DACA. But, fret not if you have not ever filed because there is still hope!! The federal appeals court in the 5th Circuit (Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana) sided with her lower court and ruled last Wednesday, October 5th, 2022, that the DACA program was created illegally. Alas! that ruling was a bit weird because the Biden administration just published a final rule to protect the DACA initiative from further legal challenges. The final rule goes into effect October 31, 2022. The appeals court ordered the lower court go figure how the Biden final rule would play our in the thrust of the court finding that DACA is illegal.
