Immigration Permit Class Offered

Capece

Classes are being offered for people interested in securing deferred action permits enabling them to receive a work permit and a valid driver’s license.  Sonia Capece of the Latino Resource Center explains securing that permit carries with it certain complications that applicants need to learn about.  Capece says the purpose of the classes is to instill confidence in the applicants that they should be applying for the permits and that they are complying with all the requirements.  She adds that the government forms can be very complex and it is important that they are filled out correctly.  “If you don’t,” she says, “you may be missing the opportunity when you are really entitled to it?”  Capece says while there is no charge for the class, participants are asked to participate in some form of community service as a sort of “pay-back” to the community that is making it possible. Deferred Action Application Classes are being taught by immigration attorneys.    Enrollment, which is limited to low income individuals, is open through October 5th.  More information about the classes is available from the Latino Resource Center.
