DACA Relief Fund

DACA Relief

There are several hundred Rhode Islanders that have only 3 ½ weeks — UNTIL OCTOBER 5, 2017 — to renew their DACA work authorization or be at risk of deportation after March 5, 2018.

What you need to know:

• If you have a valid work authorization, you are allowed to continue to use it until its expiration date.

• If your work authorization expires between now and March 5, 2018, DHS will take renewal applications that are properly filed before October 5, 2017.

• DHS will not be accepting any new DACA application as of September 5, 2017.

• Any new applications that were pending prior to September 5, 2017 will be adjudicated on a case-by-case basis.

Several clinics have been set up in Rhode Island to offer free service for the renewal process. However, the DACA renewal fee is $495, which is cost prohibitive to DACA recipients who come from low-income families.
If you would like to donate to help offset the cost of filing fees for individuals who can afford to pay, we have set up a DACA Relief fund. Any amount will be helpful. QUESTIONS? Contact Marta V. Martínez: marta@casori.org

CASO is a program of the Cesar Chavez Fund and as such is a private, non-profit charitable 501c3 organization, dedicated to supporting immigrants in Rhode Island. All donations will be tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. FEIN# 26-4062299

Checks may be made payable to Cesar Chavez Fund — please write “DACA Relief Fund”
on the reference note at the bottom of your check.
