On Friday, November 20, CIS-NYC participated in a rally at City Hall to mark the one-year anniversary of President Obama’s announcement of DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans) and expanded DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). These family-oriented programs would keep families together in the United States and offer undocumented immigrants a chance to legally work and study. Rosa Gaona, one of our clients, spoke at the rally about the fears her children have that she will be deported.
