A new report released by the Congressional Research Service cites estimates that as of December 2020, over 1.7 million undocumented individuals may be eligible now or in the near future for protection from removal and work authorization under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative. According to these estimates, approximately 1.3 million are immediately eligible, another 384,000 are eligible except for the education requirements, and roughly 14,000 will be eligible soon due to age requirements.
