Information Session and Legal Clinic: DACA Renewal Following the Announcement of the Program’s Termination

in Array
On Monday, September 18th, Ceiba and Esperanza Immigration Legal Services will organize an information session to update the community on DACA following the announcement of its termination earlier this month.
 
The event will take place in Ceiba’s new office, located at 174 W Diamond St Philadelphia PA 19122 (on the corner of Diamond and Hancock).
 
“It is important to fully understand what the termination of DACA could mean for you. For example, those whose DACA expires between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 have until October 5, 2017 to complete the renewal process,” said Mary Clark, Esq., the Executive Director of Esperanza Immigration Legal Services. There will be immigration lawyers at the Information Session to answer questions and help with renewal applications.
 
“Staying informed of the status of DACA under the current reality is not only important for those who qualify for renewal. This information helps everyone avoid being a victim of fraud. There are scammers who would take advantage of sad moments, such as this, to scam our friends and family,” expressed Diego Tapia, Ceiba Program Director.  
 
The session will also provide information regarding financial assistance to cover the costs of renewal.
