Libertas Academy Students to host Citizenship Conference Saturday

Libertas Academy students, immigration attorneys, representatives from immigrant advocacy groups and others in the immigration field will assist legal permanent residents to apply for citizenship at Americas High School.

The fair will include refugee legal services for families. In addition, workshops will be available for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals initiative, a federal policy that allows undocumented immigrants who come to the United States as children to get a reprieve from deportation; and for Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, which grants deferred action status to certain illegal immigrants who have lived in the United States since 2010 and have children who are American citizens or lawful permanent residents.

Libertas Academy is a four-year program for students at Americas High School who are interested in studying the judicial system and government.

Libertas Academy is working in partnership with Socorro AFT, the Diocesan Migrant and Refugee Service Inc., Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center, and the El Paso Immigration Bar.
