DACA Workshops

What is DACA?

DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is a program that protects about 800,000 young people identified as “DREAMers” who were brought to the US illegally as minors. While the program does not grant them official legal status or a path to citizenship, it does allow them to obtain a driver’s license, a social security number, and a work permit.

DREAMers are

the Future

If you are a DACA beneficiary and like to know more about DACA and work permits (Employment Authorization Documents), when the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is accepting applications or when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is allowing travel; we invite you to attend one of our workshops. Immigration Attorney Victor Segura will be able to answer any legal questions.

TPS Workshops

What is TPS?

The Department of Homeland Security grants a foreign country Temporary Protected Status (TPS) due to conditions in the country that prohibit its citizens from returning safely, or because the country is unable to accommodate the return of its citizens sufficiently in such situations.

Countries Eligible for TPS

Nationals from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen may be eligible to apply for TPS status. Join us in one of our workshops to find out more.
