On January 4, UFCW Local 1161 participated in an informational session with over 200 attendees at St. Mary’s School in Worthington, Minnesota to discuss President Obama’s recent executive actions on immigration. In November, the President put a program in place known as Deferred Action for Parents or DAP to remove the threat of deportation for parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents. Many UFCW local unions are hosting similar forums to help members determine whether they qualify, gather necessary documentation, prescreen their applications, and answer important legal questions.
If you are interested in sample documents that can help in this process please contact Amy Gray at email@example.com. In addition, DAP flyers in English and Spanish are available on the UFCW Political Toolkit. To order flyers, simply visit www.ufcwtoolkit.com, create a username and password, and place your order. The flyers will be shipped to your local at no cost (they are under the category “Immigration”).
