Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Resources

Message from President Inman –

“What we feared most has happened…the current administration is determined to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)…No more applications will be accepted and many who are gainfully employed and have given much to this country are in fear of deportation.

For many of us, this hits very close to home. These individuals are our students, clients, friends, colleagues, and family members.

The issue is now with Congress. Contact your Senators and Representatives in Congress today by phone, FAX, or email. Provide your name and zip code. Tell them you are a constituent in their District and State. In your message, express your concern, urge your representatives to do the right thing and take action to keep DACA — to protect these immigrants who came as children – many without memories, language, or contacts in their country of origin. Like you and me, many of these individuals know the U.S. to be their home.  Do everything you can do to support DACA!”
