On September 5, the Trump Administration made the heartbreaking and disastrous decision to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, effective March 5, 2018.
Since the inception of DACA in 2012, TCH has helped more than 300 young people gain DACA status so they can continue their education, help support their families and pursue their dreams.
We will continue to stand with DACA recipients and advocate for a DREAM Act that keeps families together.
- In response to the creation of the DACA program, we hired an immigration specialist to handle these cases exclusively
- On September 20, we partnered with Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) to host a free community forum on "Options After DACA"
- On September 22, our Immigration Department altered their case loads to see DACA clients for renewals
