LA SED to host DACA legal forum this weekend
The meeting comes after Trump's repeal of the immigration act
LA SED (Latin Americans for Social and Economic Development), the Southwest Detroit nonprofit that assists with social programs for Detroit’s Latino residents, is hosting a legal forum on Saturday, September 9, for residents with questions about President Trump’s rollback of the Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Act.
DACA was passed in 2012 by the Obama Administration, but began winding down this month under the Trump Administration. The measure was designed to allow children who entered the United States illegally to remain in the country through renewable two-year periods.
The forum at LA SED will hope to answer legal questions about the repeal of DACA and what it means for families in Southwest Detroit and adjoining areas.
The forum will be held at 11 a.m. on September 9 at LA SED’s senior center, 7150 Vernor Hwy., in Detroit. For more information, contact Adonis Flores at [email protected] or 313-658-2389. Visit LA SED’s website here.
