DACA

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was established by an Executive Order by President Obama in 2012 for undocumented youth who came to the U.S. under the age of 15 and includes temporary relief from deportation, a work permission and valid Social Security Number. There are 17,300 Coloradans who have benefited from DACA.

On September 5, 2017, the Trump administration repealed DACA and called upon Congress to take legislative action to protect Dreamers by March 5, 2018. Congress has failed to take action. However, on April 24th, 2018, Judge John D. Bates of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) protections must stay in place and that the Federal Government must resume accepting new applications. These changes will not go into effect for an additional 90 days. The Trump Administration has 90 days to issue an appeal stating a legal justification for DACA to be repealed. In the meantime, for those who already have DACA, you can still renew. If you have never applied for DACA, you cannot apply now. Advanced Parole is still not available.

Together Colorado no longer offers DACA Clinics or support with renewal applications.

Colorado Rapid Response Network

The Colorado Rapid Response Network is committed to responding to raids, deportation and any Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) activity happening across the state in our communities and receive support for someone who has been detained or deported. This statewide network is intended to immediately respond to reported situations by confirming, documenting, slowing down and controlling the public narrative of these events as we fight to keep our families together.

This network launched a 24/7 Hotline at 1-844-864-8341 on June 15, 2017.

The development of this network was created by: American Friends Service Committee, Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition, Colorado People's Alliance, Mi Familia Vota, Padres y Jovenes Unidos, SEIU Local 105, Together Colorado, United for a New Economy and the Colorado Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild.
