Deferred Action Free Legal Clinic:
Watsonville (Pajaro Valley High School cafeteria, 500 Harkins Slough Rd.) on Saturday, December 8th from 12:30PM – 5:00PM. We will have the application packet there, or you can bring your application to be reviewed. Lawyers and volunteers will be available to help.

What is deferred action:
On June 15, 2012, President Barack Obama announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) would not deport certain DREAM Act–eligible undocumented youth. Under a directive from the secretary of DHS, these youth will be given a type of temporary permission to stay in the U.S. called “deferred action.” This program often is referred to as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. Deferred action will be valid for two years and may be renewed at the end of the two years. Individuals who receive deferred action may apply for and obtain employment authorization.

Who is eligible? If you currently are undocumented and you...
• came to US under the age of 16
• were under 31 as of June 15 2012
• lived in the US continuously from June 15 2007 to the present
• are in school or GED program, or high school or GED graduate
• have no serious criminal record and no gang affiliation
...then YOU may be eligible to get your work permit, SSN and drivers license!
You must be 15 to apply -- but younger students can always get information.
