September 5, 2017 -- Today, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced President Trump’s intent to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This decision will undoubtedly affect many persons who have been allowed to live and work legally in the U.S. under the program.  The details of the program's phasing out still remain to be determined and announced by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  We will provide additional information as it becomes available.  Casa Cornelia Law Center will be contacting its DACA recipients to provide additional information when it becomes available​ as well​.  At this time it is important that persons with DACA status wait to hear from reliable sources and not take any action that could negatively impact their case or their status. To all DACA recipients, we stand with you.

If you are or have been a DACA client of Casa Cornelia, please be sure to keep us updated as to your current address, telephone number, and email address by calling (619) 231-7788. If your information has not changed, there is no need to contact us at this time; we will be in touch as soon as there is reliable information to share.

Since its founding in 1993, Casa Cornelia has had increasing financial support from those committed to its mission of providing justice to impoverished victims of human rights violations.  Its anniversary quest to continue its pursuit of justice with compassion is not simply tilting at windmills, nor illusory.  It is a possible impossible dream! It is our goal to raise $1.1 million in unrestricted funds between now and our 25th Anniversary in 2018.
