Comment: DACA Events In Your City: With the recent news regarding the first group of undocumented youth who been granted deferred action, the need for legal assistance has increased on the grounds. The forms involved in applying for deferred action for childhood arrivals, known as DACA, may look simple, but some issues that are extremely common amongst undocumented youth might need some legal guidance. The Deferred Action program announced on June 15 does not have an appeal process, so getting it right the first time is vital.

Here are the upcoming dates:

  • Sep 13, 6pm: Gateway center in Westchester Community College, 75 Grasslands Road Valhalla, NY 10595
  • Sep 15, 12pm: Norman F. Feldheym, 555 West 6th Street San Bernardino, CA 92410
