Welcome to the Las Positas College Undocumented, DACA and AB 540 Students’ Resources site.
We developed this site to provide resources and support for Dreamers @ LPC. On December 5, 2017 the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District Board of Trustees approved the Las Positas College Joint Resolution that designated LPC a “sanctuary campus.” The administrators, faculty, and staff firmly believe that all students belong at LPC and should be supported in their educational pursuits.
JULY 29, 2020
Despite the Supreme Court decision to reinstate the DACA program, the Trump administration released a memo yesterday that continues to restrict the DACA program.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Current DACA Recipients
- Can continue to apply to renew their DACA
- DACA protections and benefits continue (e.g. deportation protection and work permits)
- Renewal period has been shortened from 2 years to 1 year
- Renewal fee remains $495, but may rise in coming months
New DACA Applicants
- USCIS will not accept any initial DACA applications
- Any initial DACA applications and fees that have been submitted will be rejected and returned
- Advance Parole applications will be rejected unless there are “exceptional circumstances”
- Any pending Advance Parole applications and fees that have been submitted will be rejected and returned
The Trump Administration will likely be sued for this brazen move by the government to subvert the Supreme Court’s decision on the DACA program. More updates will be provided as we learn more.
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
Get an immigration screening. 1 in 4 DACA recipients we’ve screened were eligible for a permanent immigration option. Use our Immigration Legal Intake Service to learn about your immigration options.
Take Action. DACA was never intended to be a long-term solution and the majority of undocumented people are not eligible for the protections and opportunities afforded by the DACA program. Reach out to your members of Congress to urge them to pass immigration reform that will enable undocumented youth and their families to thrive in the United States. For more ways to take action, check out HomeisHere.US.
WHAT CAN ALLIES DO?
Donate to a DACA renewal fund. The cost to renew DACA is $495. Donate to help ensure people don’t miss out on the opportunity to renew. You can donate at www.DACARenewalFund.com or FWD’s GoFundMe Hub.
Check-in on DACA recipients and other immigrants.These communities need to know we have their backs.
Take care of yourself and reach out for support. Take a break from social media and reach out to those in your support system to share how you’re feeling. If you or someone you know is in crisis and needs immediate help, text HOME to 741741 or call 1-800-273-8255. Both services are free and available 24/7
We know this is a lot to take in. We want you to know that Immigrants Rising is committed to fighting alongside you and other undocumented young people.
