Law Students to Help Young Immigrants Apply for Deportation Relief

MIAMI – Students from two Miami-area law schools will devote their spring break vacations to helping young undocumented immigrants who want to avoid deportation through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Around 20 participants from the University of Miami and Florida International University law schools will travel around the state next week offering free legal advice to DACA applicants, organizer and FIU law student Jose Diaz told Efe on Wednesday.

The tour will make stops in Naples, Orlando, Gainesville and Plant City, east of Tampa.

“These are areas with a great need for legal services on immigration. They are areas different from Miami, given that the majority of the ‘DREAMers’ are the children of farm workers and have less access to information and lawyers,” Diaz said.

The DACA program was designed for the people who stand to benefit from the DREAM Act, long stalled in Congress.

The students are to be supervised by experienced immigration lawyers, who will take note of how these workshops go to apply the model on the national level.

In addition, they will take advantage of the chance to get to know firsthand the immigration situation of the parents of DACA applicants who approach them during their tour, Diaz said.

At the workshops, the students, with the help of the attorneys, will make a “complete legal examination” of the DREAMers’ documents so that they can apply for DACA, he said. EFE
