President Obama’s announcement that people who were brought to the U.S. as young children (and meet certain requirements) will be considered for relief from deportation is a significant milestone in the immigrant rights movement. Hundreds of thousands of undocumented young people who have spent a significant portion of their lives in the U.S. and consider themselves Americans now have hope and relief.
As expected, there are questions and lots of details to consider and La Coalición is here to help.
We have developed and compiled some tools to help you get all the info you need to decide if you or anyone you know qualifies for this deferred action.

We are also hosting information sessions to make sure the right information gets out and to protect the community from people who may use this announcement as a way to take advantage of others. Both sessions are in Spanish, free, and here at the Coalition.
