Changes to DACA:
On September 5, 2017, President Trump directed the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to phase out and eventually end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) over two and half years. The following links will provide resources to ensure students/families are provided support during this period of change and uncertainty:

- Legal Aid Society will be providing "Know Your Rights" forums and workshops in the upcoming weeks - stay tuned.
