5 Things You Can Do Now To Prepare for The President’s Announcement on Immigration

Share with your friends


In 2012, our movement successfully pressured President Obama and won Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) – a policy providing young people without papers protection from deportation and work permits. This was the immigrant rights movement’s biggest success since 1986, but we knew the work was far from over. Millions of our parent, friends and loved ones were left out and still live in fear of deportation.

That’s why we are fighting so administrative relief is extended to millions of other undocumented immigrants in the United States who deserve the same opportunity to fulfill their dreams and live without fear. And thanks to our movement’s organizing, that day is coming soon!

While we don’t know when the President will take action, or scope of Administrative Relief, it’s still important to get ready. Here are 5 tips on how to prepare!

1. Don’t Get Scammed

There is currently no application process which means NO ONE, including lawyers, should retain a case. Do NOT pay immigration consultants, notaries or anyone else making false promises.

2. Save Money

Start filling up that piggy bank! You may want to open a bank account if you don’t have one.

3. Prepare Your Documents

This includes financial, school, property, marriage, divorce employment, medical and other records that show your name, U.S. address and date.

4. Get ID from your home country

Contact your local consulate to obtain copy of your birth certificate and an ID (valid passport or consular identification card)
