Within hours of being sworn in as the 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden signed more than a dozen executive orders, dealing with immigration, climate change, the pandemic and more.

One of those executive orders solidified the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program, which former President Donald Trump had attempted to end during his administration.

We get the latest from WBUR's Shannon Dooling, and check in with two local DACA recipients, Elias Rosenfeld and Estefany Pineda.

This segment aired on January 21, 2021.
