Clatsop Community College will host a community forum to discuss the effects of President Obama’s June 15th announcement that allows immigration agents to defer deportation for DREAM eligible residents.
To be eligible for deferred status residents must be between 15 and 30 years; have been in the U.S. for at least 5 years as of 6/15/2012; be enrolled in school, have graduated from high school, or have obtained a GED, have maintained continuous residence in the U.S.; and have no felony, serious misdemeanor or multiple misdemeanor record.
This important educational forum will take place Tuesday, July 31, at 6:00 p.m. in the CCC South County Center, Room 3, 1455 N. Roosevelt, Seaside, OR. The forum is presented by Causa, an Oregon immigrant rights organization, and is organized by the Clatsop Community College Latino Club and Literacy Program. The forum will be bilingual, in English and Spanish.
The forum will address suspension of the deportation of eligible youth and young adults; acquisition of work permits, Social Security numbers and Oregon drivers’ licenses; and access to colleges and universities. Attorneys will be available to answer questions.
