SAN DIEGO — Catholic Charities San Diego is stepping up its assistance to young immigrants who want to apply to the DACA program for the first time, including offering grants to cover the application fee.
A federal judge ordered the Trump Administration to begin taking new applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which had been in legal limbo for four years.
Staff at Catholic Charities is offering virtual orientations in English and Spanish about the program. The agency’s staff, which includes immigration attorneys, helps the migrants prepare their application. And, using donated funds, the organization is able to cover the $495 application fee.
As it has done for 100 years, the agency helps everyone in need, not just Catholics. The agency also provides a variety of other services for immigrants and refugees.
