Statement by ACE President Ted Mitchell on Final DACA Regulations

​“We applaud this action by the Biden administration to preserve and fortify the existing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. These final regulations provide some clarity and certainty to the outstanding and talented young people caught for far too long in legal and political limbo.

However, this must be viewed as a welcome but limited step on the path to a permanent legislative solution that will protect Dreamers and allow them to feel secure in the only country most have ever regarded as home. After more than a decade of dithering, Congress needs to step up and take action to solve this problem.”
