DACA has allowed hundreds of thousands of qualified immigrant youth to gain legal protection, attend higher education, and support their families and communities. Trump is facing a September 5, 2017, deadline however, set by Texas Attorney General Paxton and other state attorneys general to end DACA or face legal action, a similar and unfortunate fate as DAPA.
This is a serious threat for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants, including their friends, family members and extended communities, and it will take all of us raising our voices together to begin to turn the tide.
PLAN believes that fellow Nevadans should not have to live in fear of deportation or be perpetually criminalized. Instead, they should be recognized as contributing members of our communities because they are our co-workers, classmates and neighbors. They are human, and deserve to be treated with the rights you and your loved ones enjoy.
PLAN has a broad coalition that advocates for immigrant rights’ and works collectively to provide immigrant families with resources needed to protect themselves. Our work will ensure that we have a just Nevada that is inclusive to all immigrant families.
If you, a friend, loved one or neighbor need assistance with Deferred Action (DACA), an Adjustment Status, Assistance at CIS, Interviews, Family Petitions, Temporary Protected Status, (TPS) or other immigrant services, we are here. You are not alone.
To provide you with the best service and support, especially during these uncertain times, please call us at +1-775-800-1851 to make an in-person appointment.
