CHBA Press Release: CHBA Statement on the Trump Administration’s DACA Announcement

The Connecticut Hispanic Bar Association (CHBA) is disappointed by the action taken by the White House today.  CHBA is committed and stands with the worthy immigrant youth affected by this new policy and encourages Congress to find a legislative solution before the 6-month delay becomes effective.  We urge all members of Congress to swiftly pass the bipartisan Dream Act 2017.

If you are personally impacted by this new policy, please talk to an immigration lawyer about your specific case to determine what steps you may or may not need to take at this time. If you would like to contact the CHBA with questions or would like to be connected to resources, please contact us at President@ct-hba.org.
