PHOENIX - Several Phoenix-area attorneys announced on Wednesday they are offering services free of charge for those impacted by President Donald Trump's decision to end the DACA program, also known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
According to Stephanie Corcoran, a local attorney, those with a DACA status expiring between Sept. 5 and March 5 should apply for a renewal before Oct. 5. Any renewal applications after that date will be rejected.
The attorneys are also advising the so-called Dreamers not to travel outside the country. Those who have been ordered removed should seek legal council immediately, according to attorneys.
About 800,000 undocumented immigrants may be impacted if Congress is unable to pass legislation, as requested by President Trump.
The Arizona chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association has provided this list of attorneys willing to provide some services free of charge:
