Commemorating the 12th anniversary of DACA

By Zachary Jackson, KVOA News 4 Tucson

TUCSON, Ariz. (KVOA) The Arizona Center for Empowerment (ACE) will be celebrating the 12th anniversary of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program by hosting a clinic today.

The event gives current DACA recipients the opportunity to renew and protect their DACA at no cost, offering scholarships to cover 100% of the application fee.

“The DACA Program has served a valuable purpose for 12 years offering some protection and some form of normalcy for hundreds of thousands of recipients across the country. But this is not enough, without comprehensive immigration reform, the attacks on the program will continue.” Said Karime Rodriguez, Servicios Director at ACE. Rodriguez continued, “DACA Recipients will continue to live in limbo, and under threat that their security could be ripped out from under them at a moment's notice. Comprehensive immigration reform must be the number one priority number for the Pres. Biden's administration and Congress."
