    AG Jeff Sessions had announced on September 5, 2017 in a press conference that DACA had been rescinded. US Citizenship and Immigration Services had only accepted DACA initial cases on or before September 5, 2017. No initial DACA cases had been accepted afterwards. Those DACA cases that had been filed before that date will be adjudicated or were adjudicated on a case by case basis, just like previously. Anybody whose DACA expired between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 was able to file before October 5, 2017.

    Project elements relate closely to elements of the Foundation mission statement, as follows:
    Improving the justice system by helping people in need: Maxwell Street Legal Clinic helps low-income immigrants with few resources and nowhere else to turn. The project will help families prepare crucial family documents that might not have been possible without access to low-cost legal services.
    Providing information to the public: Onsite consultations, document prep workshops and offsite education sessions will empower hundreds of low-income immigrants with “toolkits” for emergency preparedness and at least 200 families with properly completed forms granting Power of Attorney, plus guidance on how to implement them.
    Building trust in the legal system: Few subjects are as beset with rumor, misinformation and fear as immigration enforcement. Our project builds a protective bridge between immigration and family law. It shows parents that—absent abuse or neglect, and regardless of country of origin—the law supports the integrity of families and empowers them to make decisions about care for their children.
    Engaging volunteer attorneys: It’s a testament to the mission and to the bar. Maxwell Street Legal Clinic has received offers to help. The project will enable a trained and coordinated corps of attorney volunteers to engage with new neighbors—and share a stake in their future.
