UNITE HERE—the union of hospitality workers—welcomes you.
You were brave enough to come here. We want you to stay! ¡Les queremos aquí!
Our union firmly believes that all immigrants should have easy access to resources that will aid them while living and working in our country. These include applications for U.S. citizenship and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status.
President Barack Obama’s administration implemented DACA in 2012, providing temporary relief to millions of undocumented youth. Today, over 2 million remain eligible to apply.
Applying for U.S. citizenship and/or DACA may seem complicated, but in reality it is much simpler than it appears. This site serves to walk you through both processes, as well as provide information about accessing reliable and low-cost legal assistance.
Below are testimonies from three UNITE HERE members who explain why and how these resources are helpful:
