On October 30th, Cabrini Immigrant Services of NYC teamed up with Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP and FWD.us to host a DACA Renewal Clinic. At the clinic 30 DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients were provided with free assistance from volunteer lawyers to complete their DACA renewal applications. Thanks to the generous contributions of our donors and FWD.us each recipient was also provided with a scholarship to cover the $495 renewal fee. Renewing DACA will allow each of these young immigrants to have two additional years of protection from deportation and the ability to work legally in the U.S.
It is important that all DACA recipients renew their DACA as soon as possible as we wait for a decision from the Supreme Court about the future of the DACA program. Please help us spread the word to ensure all recipients have protection for as long as possible! If you need to renew, you can call us to make an appointment at 212-791-4590 ext. 100 or go to homeishere.us to find other service providers.
If you would like to support DACA recipients during this uncertain time, please consider making a donation to CIS-NYC’s DACA Renewal Fund at http://bit.ly/donatecis.
