Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
On June 15th, 2012 President Barack Obama announced that certain undocumented immigrants would be able to qualify for what is being called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or (DACA). If you qualify for DACA you can receive protection deportation and a working permit to work in the U.S for 2 years.
For more information visit our office at 1537 S. 6th St. (Corner of 6th st and Tasker) is open to help every Wednesday from 3pm to 5pm. You can also call us at 215-218-9079
Deferred Action is not the DREAM Act nor does it aid in our youth having better access to college or offer a path to citizenship. For these reasons, Juntos recognizes this as a step in the right direction but not the solution we need to fixing a broken immigration system. Therefore we also commit to keep fighting for a more just society that is inclusive of all of us.
See the Juntos FAQ on DACA is below for more information on the application process. Please feel free to share it with all that need more information.
En la lucha!
