On Friday, September 14 at 7PM, at Bridgehampton National Bank in Bridgehampton, Congressman Tim Bishop will host an information forum on the new immigration policy giving undocumented young people relief from deportation. The forum in the Community Room of the Bank’s location at 2200 Montauk Highway will feature a presentation from the US Citizenship and Immigration Services Field Office in Holtsville on the new policy, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
Under the policy, effective June 18, certain young people who were brought to the United States as young children will be considered for relief from deportation proceedings, provided they do not present a risk to national security or public safety and meet several key criteria. Young people meeting the criteria will also be eligible for work authorization for a renewable period of two years.
Nearly thirty undocumented young people eligible for relief from deportation under a new federal policy attended a recent information forum at the Patchogue Fire House hosted by Congressman Bishop.
The services of a lawyer are not required to apply for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Bishop urged anyone with questions, or anyone wishing to RSVP for the September 14 Forum, to contact his office at 631-289-6500.
