因應美國高院裁決 波市府7/23為移民提供免費法律諮詢

波士頓市府將舉辦活動為受到美國高等法院DAPA和擴展DACA裁決影響的移民社區提供免費法律服務


波士頓 - 2016623 - 波士頓市長偉殊今日宣佈,將於2016723日在麥迪遜公園高中舉辦免費的移民法律咨詢活動,以應美國高等法院維持臨時禁令的裁決,該禁令於201411月發佈,持續阻止實施美國公民及永久合法居民的無證移民父母暫緩遞解計劃 (DAPA)和入境兒童暫緩遞解(DACA)擴展項目

市長偉殊表示「我感到失望,阻止“擴展DACA和“DAPA”這些關於移民行政命令實施的臨時禁令依然存在 「數以百萬計的美國家庭和數以千計的波士頓人為得到一些移民上的舒緩,都已等待太久,我的移民提升辦公室將和社區組織合作,在七月中舉辦“門診”活動,來教導受影響的個人,並決定他們是否符合其他形式的移民舒緩。
波士頓市長移民提升辦公室主任Alejandra St. Guillen表示,「高等法院裁決繼續阻止實施DAPA和擴展DACA,我們感到失望,。她說,「透過我們的DACA/DAPA宣傳和教育活動,我們與社區夥伴合作,確保我們的居民獲得充分資訊並防止移民詐騙。」 我們將繼續支持符合2012年所宣布DACA原始版本資格的那些人提交申請和續期。

免費的移民法律咨詢活動將於723日週六上午10點至下午4點在洛士百利的麥迪遜公園高中舉行。 感興趣的人士可致電(617) 635-0008預約。

由於臨時禁令依然有效,目前無法辦理申請DAPA和擴展DACA 但是,2012年所發佈的DACA暫緩遞解計劃原始版本仍接受申請和續期。
由於DAPA和擴展DACA已經宣佈了,在市長偉殊領導下的波士頓市府已採取步驟,為移民社區成員提供資訊及資源。
四月時,市長偉殊推出移民資訊角落,提供現有的有關資源及服務等資訊,以助促進波士頓是移民居民的健康。移民資訊角落座落在波士頓公共圖書館位於柯普利廣場的中央圖書館,以及24間鄰里分館。這移民資訊角落的推出,是波士頓市長偉殊和美國公民及移民服務(USCIS)主任里昂羅卓桂在20156月簽署了一封協議信的結果,藉著提供入籍手續材料,警告居民有關詐騙情形,並強調美國公民的福利及責任,來推廣波士頓的公民入籍。
20163月時,市長偉殊加入117名市長,郡主管,以及地方政府,還有美國市長會議,全國城市聯盟等的行列,向美國高等法院遞交了一份法庭摘要,支持在美國對德州一案上的對移民的行政行為。該訟案導致禁止實施擴展DACADAPA的臨時禁制令出現。

CITY OF BOSTON WILL HOST EVENT TO OFFER FREE LEGAL SERVICE TO COMMUNITIES AFFECTED BY U.S. SUPREME COURT RULING ON DAPA AND EXPANDED DACA

BOSTON - Thursday, June 23, 2016 - Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced a free immigration legal consultation event will be held on July 23, 2016 at Madison Park High School in response to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling to uphold the preliminary injunction that continues to prevent the implementation of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and the expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive actions on immigration, announced in November 2014.

"I am disappointed that the preliminary injunction preventing the implementation of the executive actions on immigration known as DAPA and expanded DACA remains in place," said Mayor Walsh. "Millions of families in the United States and thousands of Bostonians have been waiting too long for some form of immigration relief. My Office for Immigrant Advancement is working with community organizations to hold a clinic in July to educate affected individuals and to determine eligibility for other forms of immigration relief."

"We are disappointed that the Supreme Court's ruling continues to prevent DAPA and expanded DACA from being implemented," said Alejandra St. Guillen, Director of the Mayor's Office for Immigrant Advancement. "Through our DACA/DAPA Outreach and Education Initiative, we are coordinating with community partners to make sure that our residents are well-informed and to prevent immigration scams. We will continue to support those who are eligible for the original version of DACA announced in 2012 to submit their applications and renewals."

The free immigration legal consultation event will be held at Madison Park High School in Roxbury from 10AM to 4PM on Saturday, July 23rd. Interested individuals should call (617) 635-0008 for an appointment.

Because the preliminary injunction remains in effect, applications for DAPA and expanded DACA are not available. However, applications and renewals for the original version of DACA, announced in 2012, continue to be available.

Since DAPA and expanded DACA were announced, the City of Boston under Mayor Walsh's leadership has taken steps to offer information and resources to members of the immigrant community.

In April, Mayor Walsh launched Immigrant Information Corners to provide information about resources and services available to help advance the well-being of the city's immigrant residents. The Immigrant Information Corners are located at the Boston Public Library's Central Library in Copley Square and 24 neighborhood branches. The launch of the Immigrant Information Corners is the result of a letter of agreement signed by Mayor Walsh and Leon Rodriguez, Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), in June 2015 to promote citizenship in Boston by providing materials on the naturalization process, warning residents about scams, and highlighting the benefits and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship.

In March 2016, Mayor Walsh joined 117 mayors, county executives, and local governments, as well as the U.S. Conference of Mayors and the National League of Cities in submitting an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in support of the executive actions on immigration in United States v. Texas, the lawsuit that led to the preliminary injunction preventing the implementation of expanded DACA and DAPA.
