A Dream organization in a major Southern state is charging $300-$400 for review of documentation for deferred action applications. Is this right or wrong? Join the conversation below.
Each city and county in the U.S. has its own regulations in regards to hosting large events. If the regulation requires police officers present to keep the crowd under control, organizations working with undocumented individuals should comply with the regulation. The police are not to be feared in most major cities, since these are “sanctuary cities” where the local police do NOT cooperate with ICE and other Federal immigration enforcement initiatives. However, each city/county has its own policy in regards to working with the undocumented population, some are punitive, and actively cooperate with Federal immigration enforcement. Large DREAM events in such locations need to take this into account, as members of the community who may want to attend such events may be recipients of NTAs issued by ICE. See the local police website for more information before deciding to host a large Deferred Action event.
