May 19 is the day that President Obama’s Executive Action program, Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA), was scheduled to accept applications.
DAPA will give relief and work opportunity to millions of undocumented parents with American children. But it has been blocked by a lawsuit and is being held up in court.
On May 19, New York’s immigrant communities will rally to say we want an end to delays, and the opportunity to apply for DAPA.
Join us as we demonstrate that New York is #ReadyForAction!
