Welcome to the Las Positas College Undocumented, DACA and AB 540 Students’ Resources site.
We developed this site to provide resources and support for Dreamers @ LPC. On December 5, 2017 the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District Board of Trustees approved the Las Positas College Joint Resolution that designated LPC a “sanctuary campus.” The administrators, faculty, and staff firmly believe that all students belong at LPC and should be supported in their educational pursuits.

SEPTEMBER 1, 2020
Despite the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to reinstate DACA to its original 2012 form, the Trump Administration has since announced changes to the program. USCIS recently announced details about how those changes are going to be implemented.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Current DACA Recipients
- Current DACA Recipients can continue to apply to renew their DACA. It is recommended that you submit your renewal between 150 and 120 days of the expiration date of your current DACA. USCIS has stated that it would reject all applications received 150 days prior to your current DACA expiration date.
- DACA protections and benefits continue (e.g. deportation protection and work permits)
- Renewal period has been shortened from 2 years to 1 year
- Renewal fee remains $495
New DACA Applicants
- USCIS will reject all initial DACA applications
- Any initial DACA applications and fees that have been submitted will be rejected and returned
- Advance Parole applications will be rejected unless there are “exceptional circumstances.”
USCIS gave examples of situations in which they might grant someone Advance Parole.
They include, but are not limited to:
- Travel to support the national security interests of the United States;
- Travel to support U.S. federal law enforcement interests;
- Travel to obtain life-sustaining medical treatment that is not otherwise available to the individual in the United States; or
- Travel needed to support the immediate safety, wellbeing or care of an immediate relative, particularly minor children of the individual.
- IMPORTANT: Being granted Advance Parole does not guarantee that you will be allowed to re-enter the U.S. It is important that you speak with an immigration attorney to understand your situation BEFORE traveling outside of the U.S.
For frequently asked questions regarding these changes, click here.
Please reach out to a trusted legal service provider to help you understand how the changes to the DACA program may impact you. You can find a legal service provider at Immigrationlawhelp.org or ailalawyer.com.
The Trump Administration has been sued for this brazen move to subvert the Supreme Court’s decision on the DACA program. More updates will be provided as we learn more.
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
Get an immigration screening. 1 in 4 DACA recipients we’ve screened were eligible for a permanent immigration option. Use our Immigration Legal Intake Service to learn about your immigration options.
Take Action. DACA was never intended to be a long-term solution and the majority of undocumented people are not eligible for the protections and opportunities afforded by the DACA program. Reach out to your members of Congress to urge them to pass immigration reform that will enable undocumented youth and their families to thrive in the United States. For more ways to take action, check out HomeisHere.US.
WHAT CAN ALLIES DO?
Donate to a DACA renewal fund. The cost to renew DACA is $495. Donate to help ensure people don’t miss out on the opportunity to renew. You can donate at www.DACARenewalFund.com or FWD’s GoFundMe Hub.
Check-in on DACA recipients and other immigrants.These communities need to know we have their backs.
Take care of yourself and reach out for support. Take a break from social media and reach out to those in your support system to share how you’re feeling. If you or someone you know is in crisis and needs immediate help, text HOME to 741741 or call 1-800-273-8255. Both services are free and available 24/7
We know this is a lot to take in. We want you to know that Immigrants Rising is committed to fighting alongside you and other undocumented young people.
