Waking Dream – Free Film Screening

About:

Join us for a free film screening of Waking Dream and a follow-up panel discussion with the film’s participants!

Waking Dream is a documentary that weaves together the stories of six DACA recipients as they sit in limbo between deportation and a path to citizenship.

DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) has provided nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrant youth a chance to work legally, go to college, start businesses, and pursue the “American Dream.”

After DACA was rescinded, Waking Dream follows the unfolding fate of six of these young people as they fight for legal status in the U.S., struggle with the deportation of family members, and pursue their dreams.

DACA Has Been Rescinded, This Is What You Need To Know

 

The Trump administration has officially phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The end of this program means life-changing consequences for young people and their communities. Now, more than ever, the Dream Resource Center remains committed to immigrant youth and the fight for immigrant rights.

 

This is what you need to know about this decision:  

 

  • As of today, September 5, 2017, US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is no longer accepting first-time DACA applications.

 

  • For current DACA recipient, the Employment Authorization Document (EAD or “work permit”) is valid until the expiration date on your EAD card even if that is after March 5, 2018.

 

  • Pending DACA initial and DACA renewal applications filed before September 5, 2017 until March 5, 2018, will continue to be processed.

 

  • DACA renewal applications from current beneficiaries set to expire between Sept. 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018, will be accepted if the renewal application has been received by Oct. 5, 2017.

 

  • You can no longer apply for Advance Parole to travel outside the country. If you have a pending Advance Parole associated with DACA it will be closed and your fee refunded.

 

  • If you are out of the country with DACA based Advance Parole we encourage you to work with an attorney and return to United States as soon as practicable.

 

  • If your EAD is lost or stolen and needs to be replaced you can file for a replacement.

 

  • Even if your DACA EAD remains valid, being a DACA recipient may not protect you if you encounter ICE.

 

  • The Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) created a helpful handout addressing work permits and employment, Social Security Numbers, state ID cards, travel on Advance Parole, Know Your Rights and more – we highly recommend you review this information.
