800,000 young women and men who have lived in the United States for most of their lives are at risk of being deported now that the Trump Administration has made the decision to revoke DACA, the program initiated by the Obama Administration that allowed “The Dreamers,” as they are known, who came here as undocumented children to live, be educated and work in the United States without fear of deportation.

Have questions about the DACA repeal? Come get answers from immigration expert Professor Gemma Solimene, Director of Fordham’s Immigration Rights Clinic, which works every day to protect immigrants from deportation.

Sponsored by The Latin American and Latin@ Studies Institute and co-sponsored by the English Department, American Studies, International Studies, The Observer, The Creative Writing Program, Desi CHAI, and The Commuting Students Association.

Lunch will be provided.
