A virtual event sponsored by the Immigrant Services Division will provide information on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program from 9 to 10:30 a.m. March 24, 2021, the Department of Housing and Human Services announced.
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, also known as DACA, is a U.S. immigration policy that protects immigrants known as Dreamers from deportation. After being brought into the U.S. by their parents, these young individuals are now residing in the country without lawful status. The DACA program allows them to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and become eligible for a work permit in the United States.
Space is limited for participation. The virtual event is suggested for community members or school counselors interested in learning more. Topics will include program eligibility, qualifications and requirements.
To RSVP, contact Margaret Santos at the Maui County Immigrant Services Division at (808) 270-7117; or send email to email@example.com, no later than 4 p.m. March 17. A BlueJeans videoconference meeting link will be provided to those who reserve space for the event.
