WHEN: Wednesday, February 18, 2015 at 6:00 PM

WHERE: Alliance San Diego, 4443 30th Street, San Diego, CA 92116

San Diego, CA – Community members in San Diego are moving forward despite the preliminary injunction ruling on Monday that temporarily blocks the implementation process of the new immigrant deferred action programs. San Diegans will continue to prepare for implementation of extended DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans) that will give thousands of Californians the chance to live, work, and stay in the U.S. with their families.

Activities and Persons of Interest for Interview Opportunities
New DACA applicants and DACA renewal applicants will be in on-site along with local attorneys and immigration advocates to address questions from the media.

San Diego Immigrant Rights Consortium and community members urges Congress to pass a real immigration reform that provides a permanent solution, keeps families together, and respects the quality of life of border communities by ensuring accountability and oversight over Customs and Border Protection, the nation’s largest law enforcement agency.

Since 2007, San Diego Immigrant Rights Consortium (SDIRC) has worked to bring together leaders from the faith, labor, and legal communities to advocate policies that promote the civic and human rights of immigrants and is comprised of 20 organizations from throughout San Diego County.

San Diegans Gather to Defend DACA on National Day of Action

PRESS CONFERENCE DETAILS

WHEN: Tuesday, February 17, 2015 at 11:00 AM

WHERE: Christ the King Catholic Community Church, 29 N. 32nd Street, San Diego, CA 92102

San Diego, CA – On Tuesday, February 17, community members will join Congressman Juan Vargas and other San Diego leaders to show support for the implementation of the expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for eligible immigrant youth and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA), which will go in effect in May.

Even though an injunction has gone into effect to delay the implementation of expanded DACA, community leaders consider this to be a minor, yet mean-spirited, setback. Immigrant rights advocates are confident that expanded DACA and DAPA will go into effect regardless of the lawsuits and want to send a message to the community to be aware and to be prepared.

The lawsuit filed by Texas Governor Greg Abbott and joined by other attorney generals and governors is a futile effort by anti-immigrant politicians who want to block any immigration action from happening. This lawsuit has no merit, wastes taxpayer dollars, and harms immigrant families.

DACA and DAPA programs will allow at least 91,000 San Diegans and millions of immigrants across the country to fully participate in our economy and communities. The programs provide a temporary relief to family members by protecting them from deportation and granting work authorization.

San Diegans are calling for Congress to pass a real immigration reform that provides a permanent solution, keeps families together, and respects the quality of life of border communities by ensuring accountability and oversight over Customs and Border Protection, the nation’s largest law enforcement agency.

Since 2007, San Diego Immigrant Rights Consortium (SDIRC) has worked to bring together leaders from the faith, labor, and legal communities to advocate policies that promote the civic and human rights of immigrants and is comprised of 20 organizations from throughout San Diego County.
