I’m Risking My Life to Save Your Grandparents, but I Could Get Deported Any Day

SCOTUS is expected to rule on DACA soon. As a health care worker, I’m only essential until I’m forced to leave the country.

About This Guide

This LibGuide is for undocumented immigrants in New York City, who qualify for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

DACA was introduced by President Obama in 2012, but since President Trump has attempted to repeal DACA and has been stopped by various Attorneys General and various court injunctions, it is currently in a state of flux and confusion.

Our aim is to provide resources to alleviate that confusion.

You will find legal resources including how-to guides for renewing DACA and what to do if confronted by immigration officlas, meditation guides and resources for mental health professionals in NYC, stories from DREAMers and ways to connect with your peers, and more. 

Be sure to answer the poll and let us know what brought you here so that we can better meet your needs.
