Streamlining Dreamers’ Access to Employment-Based Visas Using D-3 Waivers

July 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Hosted by:

With Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA)’s future under threat in the courts and continuing stalemate in Congress, many Dreamers with and without DACA face high barriers and great uncertainty about their ability to contribute to our nation’s workforce. Hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients are already employed across the U.S., and there are over 400,000 undocumented students currently enrolled in higher education. Dreamers are pursuing careers in STEM, healthcare, and teaching, among others, fields that face severe labor shortages.

An administrative action that streamlines access to employment based visas for eligible DACA recipients and other Dreamers is a smart, strategic approach that enables these individuals to adjust their status and fill critical workforce needs while ensuring that U.S. employers and communities benefit from their contributions and talent. This webinar will discuss how D-3 waivers have allowed DACA recipients and other eligible Dreamers to access employment-based visas and provide an overview of the impact of recent executive actions on Dreamers’ access to D-3 waivers.
