» DACA Program to End: Support Your Undocumented Students Legally, Socio-economically a

<p><strong>The lives of hundreds of thousands undocumented youth or DREAMers are once again in limbo.</strong>&nbsp;The U.S. Administration has announced that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will be phased out within the next six months. The program allows undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children to work with a social security number and live in the country without fear of deportation.&nbsp;<strong>These 800,000 recipients, many of whom are in college, will no longer have the legal protections they formerly had. It&rsquo;s a crushing blow.</strong></p> <p><strong>The stress and fear for undocumented students is real.</strong>&nbsp;They may not be able to finish their education due to financial hardships and stressors, they may not be able work in the career they have been studying towards, and they will become vulnerable to deportation.&nbsp;<strong>Get the facts so you can support them with the phasing out of DACA &ndash; legally, socio-emotionally and academically &ndash; through March 5, 2018 and beyond.</strong></p> <p>Join us on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 and hear from&nbsp;expert presenters Stephanie Delia &ndash; Supervising Attorney at the CUNY Citizenship Now!, City College Immigration Center &ndash; and Tatyana Kleyn &ndash; Associate Professor and Program Director in the Bilingual Education and TESOL programs at The City College of New York&nbsp;&ndash; on the implications of DACA being rescinded and how it will be phased out over time,&nbsp;<span style="text-decoration: underline;">what this means for your students with DACA and the legal options your undocumented students may have available to them.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Panelists:</strong> Stephanie Delia is the supervising attorney at the CUNY Citizenship Now, City College Immigration Center.
