"The Town of Chapel Hill and the Town of Carrboro have partnered with El Centro Hispano, a community building nonprofit that assists the Triangle’s Latinx population, to sponsor a free legal clinic for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients who may be eligible to renew their status.
The clinic, which will be held at the Carrboro Town Hall from 1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, is designed to assist local DACA recipients whose status expires between Sept. 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 in the renewal process.
An information session was held on Thursday to identify and fill out the required documents for Saturday’s clinic, provide information on scholarships for those who cannot afford the $495 renewal fee and allow for interested DACA recipients to sign up for Saturday’s clinic. DACA recipients who were unable to attend the information session on Thursday are still invited to attend Saturday’s legal clinic..."
