As you probably know The Supreme Court heard oral arguments challenging The Administration’s decision to end the DACA program this past November. A decision is expected no later than June 2020. Anyone with DACA status that expires anytime in 2020 should file for an early renewal now to lock in their protection for the next two years. In light of this issue, BIIN will host a free DACA Workshop on February 21, 2020, at 6 PM at BIIN’s office, 107 Williamson Drive, Bryan, TX. Attorneys from Andrew T. Thomas Law firm will briefly discuss the current status of DACA, answer questions, and offer free individual consultations before and after the discussion. Anyone interested in attending must call the BIIN office at 979-393-8228 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP with their name and phone number no later than February 15, 2020. Attendees should bring all of their DACA paperwork so the attorneys are equipped to answer their specific questions. If you know anyone with DACA status please share this information.
