Consumer Advisory Alert
The President's Immigration Announcement Contains Protections for Some* Undocumented People
FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW:
1. No one can apply yet. People should be able to apply for Expanded DACA
around February 18, 2015. People should be able to apply for the new DAPA
program around May 19, 2015.
2. Not everyone will qualify. Being the parent of a United States Citizen or
Lawful Permanent Resident child alone is not enough to qualify you for the
DAPA program. Being a childhood arrival is not enough to show that you
qualify for the DACA program. You must meet other requirements.
3. Before you apply for any program, get legal help. Talk to someone
who is qualified to give you legal advice, such as an immigration attorney.
Look on www.ailalawyer.com to find an immigration lawyer near you.
4. Submitting the wrong information can ruin your chances of being
granted Deferred Action. Make sure all the information and documentation
is true and correct. You can start collecting supporting documents now.
5. Don’t get scammed. There are notarios and other unscrupulous people
who are already trying to take advantage of this news. They will make you
promises they can’t deliver on, and could make you a target for deportation.
