DAPA Orientation Thursday, December 18th at 5:00pm

What is Administrative Relief?

On November 20th, the President took action on Immigration Reform. This Thursday, we will not only have an opportunity to learn more about how certain aspects of Administrative Relief will be implemented, but also how to prepare people locally for the application processes.

On Thursday, December 18th, our partners at the Immigration Project will provide an orientation on Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) at 5:00pm at Oscar Romero Parish Center, 207 N. Wright Street, Champaign.  This orientation is a good opportunity to get any questions you may have about DAPA answered by a legal representative.
