Los Angeles attorney Deborah P. Gutierrez, of Thrive Law PLC, volunteers to help Dreamers avoid deportation.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 06, 2017
Due to the Trump administration’s decision to rescind the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Mexican-American attorney Deborah P. Gutierrez, founder of Thrive Law PLC, has volunteered to join a rapid response team of lawyers who will assist those affected by DACA and preserve their immigration status.
Gutierrez is a member of Lawyers for Good Government, which will be partnering with other attorneys across the country and with groups such as the American Immigration Lawyers Association to provide immediate assistance and legal counsel to “Dreamers,” those protected under DACA.
“Immigrants have been an important part of this country’s history and contribute greatly to our society. We must do everything possible to protect their rights and treat them with fairness and dignity,” said Gutierrez. “My office is committed to assisting those in jeopardy of deportation due to the rescission of the DACA program.”
DACA is a federal government program created in 2012 to allow people brought to the United States illegally as children the temporary right to live, study, and work legally in America. However, on September 5, 2017, the Department of Homeland Security announced the rescission of DACA, putting more than 800,000 Dreamers at risk of deportation. For many Dreamers, their DACA status will expire by March 5, 2018.
