Santa Barbara – On Saturday, October 14th Rep. Salud Carbajal (CA-24) will host an immigration forum with immigration experts, including representatives from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

“There is an increased sense of uncertainty in our communities, particularly when it comes to our immigration laws,” said Rep. Carbajal. “The immigrant community has undergone direct threats from this Administration, including the President’s recent decision to rescind the DACA program. As a proud immigrant to this country, I am glad to bring resources to our community to help Central Coast residents get more information and to discuss issues surrounding immigration that impact their families.”

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is the government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States. Representatives from the agency will be present to answer questions related to immigration benefits and to explain the overall application and approvals process for general immigration petitions.

On September 5th, the Trump Administration announced the termination of the DACA program. At the forum, attendees will also receive updates regarding the DREAM Act, a bipartisan bill cosponsored by Rep. Carbajal that would provide DREAMers with permanent legal status and a pathway to citizenship.

The forum will be held primarily in Spanish. Simultaneous interpreting services will be available to audience members from Spanish to English.
