Underrepresented, Asian American and Pacific Islanders urged to sign up for immigration relief

At least 130,000 undocumented people from Asia and the Pacific Islands could apply for relief from deportation through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. However very few are applying for relief — less than 15 percent of those eligible. At a July meeting in Los Angeles, young people who have taken the steps to apply for relief describe how it’s changed their lives. “Before DACA, there was a lot of uncertainty about what I could do with my college degree and my life after college.” Watch the video produced by VoiceWaves Long Beach.
