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.

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.
