Karol Brown speaks to students at University of Washington through WA DREAM Act Coalition

On Monday, June 25, Karol Brown spoke to approximately 40 students and advocates at the University of Washington.  She provided information about the requirements for applying for deferred action for "DREAMers" - young people who were brought to the United States, are attending or graduated from schools in the United States, and are between the ages of 15 and 30 years old.  She answered questions about who is eligible, the timing of the application, and where to go for additional information.

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services has provided detailed information about the program announced by President Obama on June 15, 2012 to provide relief from deportation to perhaps 1 million young people and children in the United States.  This announcement, and answers to frequently asked questions, is available at www.uscis.gov.

The Washington DREAM Act Coalition sponsored this event.  The Coalition will be hosting additional events in the coming months to inform and education potential applicants about the process for applying.  You can find more information on the Coalition on their blog at www.wdac.info/ or "Like" them on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/washingtondreamact.
