Resources and Upcoming Meeting: Fight Back Against Attack on DACA

Earlier this week we provided some resources for those impacted by the Trump administration announcement to rescind DACA.  As we continue to work with coalition partners in the Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network to develop strategies for affected communities, we will post information to the Network website and re-post to the Local 4121 website here.

Note: October 5, 2017 is the renewal deadline if your DACA and work permit is due to expire between now and March 5, 2018.  Mayor Murray is providing $150,000 in new city funds to support DACA recipients.  And the Mexican consulate is offering to pay the $495 renewal fee for Mexican nationals.  For more, see this page.

At any time, if you have questions about your individual situation please contact us at uaw4121@uaw4121.org and we will assist.  You can also attend any of these workshops throughout the area.
