Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) 

 Pro Bono Training

An estimated 100,000 undocumented Asian immigrants are eligible for “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA). A new Department of Homeland Security directive, DACA gives eligible undocumented youth a two-year pause from the threat of deportation and an opportunity to secure a work permit. For many, this will be the first opportunity to legally work and live in this country.

  Many of these immigrants are from the communities served by the various Asian bar associations of New York. Taking on a DACA case pro bono is a discrete  way to learn basic immigration law and impact the life of undocumented youth. 

 The Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) is seeking pro bono counsel to represent eligible young people applying for DACA. No prior legal experience is required, but pro bono counsel will be required to attend a training prior to taking a case. These cases will help support the work of AALDEF’s youth group for undocumented Asian Americans.

If you are interested in taking a DACA case through AALDEF, please join us for the training on:

Wednesday, September 5 from 6pm-7pm

at O’Melveny & Myers, 7 Times Square

To register for the training, please email AALDEF at: events@aaldef.org

For more information about what this new directive means for Asian American communities, see our legal alert.
