The cruel terminations of DACA and TPS in the last six months are impacting the lives of millions. While the push for permanent legislative solutions for both DACA and TPS continues, organizations, public institutions, and private actors must support as many community members as possible to process DACA Renewal and TPS Re-registration applications via community-based immigration legal workshops as the deadlines fast approach — March 19th for TPS recipients from Haiti and El Salvador and an uncertain deadline for DACA Renewals, following the Supreme Court’s decision on February 26th not to bypass the appeals court process.
