Underrepresented, AAPI’s Urged to Sign Up for Immigration Relief

Aug. 29, 2016 / By and

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy is changing the lives of many undocumented immigrants — including those who are from Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities.

Advocates gathered at a press briefing in Los Angeles to urge more AAPI immigrants to apply.

The event was organized by New America Media, Ready California, Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Los Angeles and the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
