Chapman attorneys recently partnered with attorneys and legal professionals from BMO Financial Group (through their Pro Bono program) to draft renewal paperwork for individuals whose Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) is up for renewal. DACA, which was instituted under President Obama as a temporary immigration status for young people who are without other lawful immigration status and meet certain eligibility criteria, has provided thousands of young people with the opportunity to lawfully stay and work in the United States. Led and supervised by a team from the National Immigrant Justice Center, Chapman and BMO volunteers were able to help 13 young people put together applications to renew their DACA status.
