DACA at the Supreme Court: Prepare and Organize Yourself
By Sadhana Singh July 1, 2019
As you know, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments in the DACA case in its next term (October).
We hope the Supreme Court will decide to protect the DACA program. However, we encourage you to organize and prepare yourself in the event that DACA ends.
1) The DACA program remains in place and people can still renew. If your DACA expires within the next 6 months, send in your renewal. If you need help raising money for your renewal fees, go to bit.ly/FundDACA
2) Go see an attorney, especially if circumstances in your life have changed (you got married, you joined a new religion, you now consider yourself part of a community not accepted in your home country).
3) Get involved. While we will be fighting for you, it’s more powerful when we are fighting with you. There are so many ways you can get involved, and you don’t have to share your story or be in the limelight to help push Congress to pass permanent legislation. (see resource list below)
4) Understand that the Supreme Court process will take some time. A response is expected in Spring 2020.
5) Reach out early to your friends, family, and Marisol, your mental wellness advocate, for support or if you start feeling sad.
