Beginning July 4, 2012, those interested in further information about the immigration relief program announced by President Obama this past June 15, 2012, will have one more place to go. The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) and the California Dream Network, CHIRLA's statewide youth branch, have set up a month-long series of free webinars, internet-based chats, in English and Spanish to community members interested in learning more about the Deferred Action for Dreamers program.
The live webinars will be held every Wednesday, in English, and Thursday, in Spanish, and will be led by trained peers, supervised by volunteer immigration attorneys. Participants are required to sign in advance.
The sign-in period to receive Deferred Action for Dreamers is expected begin within 60 to 90 days, according to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office, but specifics have yet to emerge. In the meantime, unscrupulous attorneys and notarios have already started offering services and promising applicants an early start.
On-line, live discussions with trained facilitators to discuss questions related to the Deferred Action for Dreamers program, also known as immigration relief.
Every Wednesday in July at 9 p.m. – 10 p.m. (PST) English format
