CoFiA will sponsor a Special Immigration Forum on Monday February 23, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. at the Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, 9 E. Homestead Ave., Palisades Park. The forum will present information on the President’s Executive Order on immigration, especially the new DACA/DAPA programs.
DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) provides relief from deportation for young people who were brought here by their parents, without documentation. DAPA (Deferred Action for Parental Accountability) allows some parents of U.S. citizens or legal residents to receive relief from deportation, work permits, and other benefits.
Neither constitute paths to citizenship but would provide important relief to millions of people.
Michael Wildes has spoken several times at CoFiA-sponsored events. He is a Managing Partner with the leading immigration law firm of Wildes and Weinberg PC in New York City, Englewood, and Miami, Florida. A former Federal Prosecutor with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn, he is also Adjunct Professor of Immigration Law and served two terms as the Mayor of Englewood, New Jersey. He was a member of the N.J. Governor’s Blue Ribbon Panel on Immigration as well.
At the forum attendees will learn: Who is eligible for DAPA/DACA. What benefits the programs will provide. What documents are needed for the application. When you can apply. Mr. Wildes and his staff will take questions.
The forum is open to all and is free. In Spanish and English.
