DACA Field Report

Suggestions For Organizations Who Assist The Undocumented

Rate this Entry

This document outlines four ways to reach the immigrant population who may be eligible for deferred action as described by DHS Secretary Napolitano on June 15, 2012. This proposal has been tailored mainly for organizations that have a grassroots membership base that includes qualifying undocumented youth.

Deferred action, which would stop the deportation of qualifying undocumented youth and allow them to obtain work authorization, is one of the biggest breakthroughs on the immigration field provided by the federal government in this decade.

We encourage grassroots organizations to collaborate with various entities in order to meet the needs of undocumented youth and also to maximize benefits for all parties involved. Here are some possible collaboration scenarios with each of this type of entities:

Law Associations

Grassroots organizations should approach local law associations to collaborate on hosting workshops for immigrant communities. In exchange for a venue and an audience to talk to, the law association would provide pro bono services to individuals of the grassroots organization. These individuals should be selected on a financial need basis.

Law Firms

Grassroots organizations should approach large immigration law firms (ideally firms that have family and removal practices) to host a workshop for community members. The workshop will entail a presentation followed by a Q&A session. In return, organizations should request law firms a sponsorship fee for presenting in the workshop. We can assist in obtaining these sponsorships. Please contact us at if you need help.

Law Schools

Grassroots organizations should approach law schools that have active law clinics to collaborate on hosting workshops for the community. In exchange for the opportunity to address an audience, obtain practical experience, and develop a professional reputation, the grassroots organization will obtain pro bono services from the law school for individuals in need.

Community Organizations

In order to meet the needs of the 1.2 million undocumented youth who could be eligible for deferred action, community-based organizations should work together to utilize their organizational resources efficiently. For example, such organizations could provide organizing and advocacy support for a legislative push for the DREAM Act and to stop deportations of undocumented youth.

    Actually, the numbers are much worse than that When I was at DoJ, we uneovcred about 330M captures/year. Some of those people were recidivists (10+/year), so that could adjust it to about 33M people captured/year.Projections using our numbers were +3-5M/year and were considered conservative Oh, and just to make this fun of the 33M captured every year, 8.5-12.5% (or about 2.5-4M) were *already* wanted criminals in the US.
