A significant number of Asian
immigrants are among an estimated 300,000 additional undocumented individuals
who may benefit from an expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
(DACA) program, for which applications will be accepted starting on February
18, 2015. DACA offers temporary relief from the threat of deportation to
young people and allows them to obtain employment authorization. Last November,
the Obama administration announced the expansion of DACA and the creation of a
new deferred action program known as DAPA for parents of U.S. citizens and lawful
permanent residents, which will begin in May 2015. For many, this will be the first opportunity to legally work and
live in this country.
The Asian American Legal Defense and
Education Fund (AALDEF) is seeking pro bono counsel to represent eligible people
who qualify under these deferred action programs. No
priorlegal experience is required, butpro bono counsel will
be required to attend a training prior to taking a case. These cases would help
support the work of RAISE, a pan-Asian undocumented youth-led group
affiliated with AALDEF.
