Media Contact: Dave Costello, 815-921-4516Through a partnership with the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, the Rock Valley College Citizenship Program is now able to provide free assistance to local undocumented youths who are eligible for Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
The Rock Valley College Citizenship Program will be hosting a workshop on March 2, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in the Woodward Technology Center (WTC) room 117 on RVC's main campus (3301 N Mulford Rd. Rockford IL 61114). During the workshop applicants will receive free a consultation and free assistance with completing the applications for deferred action.
The Obama Administration announced on June 15, 2012 that it would no longer deport undocumented immigrant youths who meet specific requirements. Those applicants who are granted deferred action will no longer be under the threat of deportation and, although it is not a path to gain legal immigration status or U.S. Citizenship, it does allow recipients to live and work in the United States.
For more information or to volunteer at the workshop please call 815-921-2274.
