Welcoming Three Million Newcomers: Maximizing Your Agency’s Effectiveness for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals; Pre-adjudication of Unlawful Presence Waivers; Increasing Naturalization; Management Training
This one-day training is not about the law. It is about what you and your program can do now to prepare for the biggest opportunities in immigration law in a quarter century. We have a chance the like of which we have not seen since three million people obtained lawful status from the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA). Participants will work in small groups to bring innovative and tested strategies and ideas to all as you create your Implementation Plan for DACA principally with a strategic assessment of how you can both reunite families while using the new Pre-adjudication of Unlawful Presence Waivers (PUPW) to boost naturalization demand. You will leave with a road map to guide you through the intense months of implementation of the new changes. All participants will receive a detailed DACA Implementation Plan Outline to complete during the training, a power point with the latest information on fees and strategies from the field, and a set of talking points to use when communicating the tremendous opportunities and challenges presented by the new procedures to foundations.
