DACA Informational Meeting on Saturday Posted May 26, 2016 by Irene


El Centro and Advocates for Immigrant Rights and Reconciliation (AIRR) are hosting a free Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) informational meeting this Saturday May 28th.  The event begins at 10:00am and will take place at our Academy for Children, located at 1330 South 30th St. in Kansas City, KS  66106.

Attorneys and trained volunteers will be on hand to answer all your questions about DACA and DACA Renewals.  We will also provide an overview of  Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA). No registration is required and please come prepared with your questions.

DACA is the executive action put in place by President Obama in 2012. DACA grants temporary protection from deportation for individuals that arrived in the US prior to age 16. Individuals born after June 15, 1981 who have lived in the US since June 15, 2007 may be eligible to receive a work permit and social security number through DACA.

DAPA is the executive action proposed by President Obama in 2014, currently under discussion in the Supreme Court. DAPA would grant temporary protection from deportation, a work permit, and social security number for individuals with American Citizen or LPR children that arrived before January 2010.
