USCIS Webinar for Public Librarians on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

USCIS-IMLS webinar scheduled for June 25

Washington, DC—The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will offer the fourth in a series of free webinars for public librarians about immigration and U.S. citizenship topics.

On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of “deferred action” for a period of two years, subject to renewal. The webinar, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, presented by USCIS and hosted by IMLS, will provide librarians with a basic understanding of deferred action, specifics on who may qualify, and identify how to file.

It is not necessary to have participated in previous USCIS-IMLS webinars to participate in this session.
