July 17, 2012 | Medgar Evers College
Medgar alumnus Brant Douglas (Class of 2010) organizes Deferred Action Immigration Workshop hosted by CUNY Citizenship Now!, the Beulah Church of the Nazarene, New York State Youth Leadership Council, and iHOPE on Thursday, July 19, 2012 at 7:00PM at Beulah Church of the Nazarene – 1250 Saint Johns Place, Brooklyn, NY 11213.
Recently, President Barack Obama issued a Deferred Action Memorandum to the Department of Homeland Security which stated undocumented youth will no longer be the target of deportations and can potentially obtain work authorizations in the United States, if qualified. This workshop is an informational session on what this immigration policy is and is not. The workshop is for individuals who may have questions or concerns about the qualifications and the meaning of Deferred Action.
