CVIIC Welcomes Supreme Court Ruling on DACA!
The Central Valley Immigrant Integration Collaborative (CVIIC) welcomes today’s Supreme Court ruling on DACA, which has blocked the Trump administration’s attempt to end the program.
At the national level, the DACA program benefits some 650,000 people who arrived to the United States as minors and underwent an exhaustive background check in order to qualify. In the Central Valley, nonprofit organizations have worked together since 2013 to assist tens of thousands of local residents with initial DACA applications and, subsequently, with renewals. CVIIC and partner organizations have organized an average of over 100 free legal services workshops per year.
Today’s decision further strengthens our resolve to continue to serve Central Valley immigrant families and to continue to develop initiatives that promote immigrant integration at the local, state and national levels.
Today, at 4 PM, CVIIC and partner organizations will hold a Facebook Live event, to be transmitted via our main Facebook page: https://facebook.com/CVIICFresno
