As you know, Mayor Murray announced $150,000 in new city funds to support DACA recipients. We’re moving quickly and working with community partners to get the word out about free workshops throughout September to help eligible DACA recipients renew their status before the October 5 deadline announced by the Trump Administration. Can you help us get the word out? Please see the attached flyer we put together “5 Things You Need to Know”. The flyer is available in 10 languages. We also have an infograph for social media in English and Spanish.
List of workshops providing free legal assistance and information can be found here: www.seattle.gov/DACA
Also, we got confirmation last night that the Mexican consulate is offering to pay the $495 DACA renewal fee for Mexican nationals. This is huge because a super majority of DACA recipients are from Mexico.
Univision is giving us and the consulate air time next Wednesday to talk about the free workshops and the scholarship support.
Director, Seattle Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs
