Richland to host Info Sessions on Deferred Action for DREAMers
Richland College will host four free information sessions about the Obama administration’s DREAM Act that became effective on June 15, 2012. This act grants undocumented students “deferred action” from deportation. Local attorney Luis Rojo will conduct each session at 6:30 p.m. in Sabine Hall, room 118 on the following dates:
• Tues., Sept. 11 (Spanish)
• Thurs., Sept. 13 (English)
• Tues., Sept. 18 (Spanish)
• Tues., Sept. 25 (English)
Rojo will explain the criteria required to qualify for deferred action, how to request consideration for deferred action, related costs, and how to avoid possible scams.
These sessions are available in English and Spanish, but are not limited to Hispanic students.
This program is facilitated by Catholic Charities of Dallas, Inc. and is sponsored by the Richland College Rising Star Program and the Richland College Achieving Latino Academic Success (ALAS) student organization.
