GRANGER - This Saturday, Dec. 1, a free workshop will be offered to help community members understand and access the Obama Administration's DREAMer "Deferred Action" program application process.
The workshop begins at 11 a.m. and will be held at the Radio KDNA building at 121 Sunnyside Ave. in Granger.
Following a short presentation, workshop attendees will have the opportunity to consult with an attorney or accredited representative about their individual situation and have their forms and supplemental documents reviewed before submitting their application materials.
The program, "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Process," removes the threat of deportation for as many as 40,000 youth in Washington state who came to the United States before the age of 16, have lived in the United States for five years before June 15 and meet certain other requirements.
The workshop is being co-organized by the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, the Washington Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and local partners.
Participants are encouraged to attend the workshop with as much of their documentation as possible and with application forms completed as much as possible.
However, volunteers will be available to assist those who have not been able to prepare forms ahead of time.
No pre-registration is required for the workshop.
