CHICAGO, IL – Heartland Alliance’s National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) is teaming up with Chicago-area community organizations to provide free information sessions where immigrants and families can learn about President Obama’s immigration administrative relief program.

In November, the president announced administrative immigration reforms that will allow more than four million immigrants in the United States to apply for temporary protection from deportation under the new Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) program and an expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The president’s executive action also establishes new categories of individuals whom the government will prioritize for deportation and expands access to waivers for green card applicants who are unlawfully present in the United States.

During NIJC’s free information sessions, legal staff provide an overview of the president’s program and requirements for DAPA and DACA, explain how individuals can prepare to apply, and provide resources to obtain additional legal screenings.

COMMUNITY PRESENTATIONS: Organizations and schools are invited to contact NIJC to host free information sessions for their members and students. Visit immigrantjustice.org/adminrelief/infosessions to submit an event inquiry or call (312) 660-1370.

CHICAGO LOOP SESSION: NIJC is hosting an information session at its Chicago Loop office on Saturday, December 13, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 208 S. LaSalle Street, Suite 1300. Registration is required for the Chicago Loop session. Sign up at immigrantjustice.org/adminrelief/loop or call (312) 660-1370.
