MEDFORD, Ore. -- A local advocacy group is offering free information on DACA and other topics to educate immigrants and DACA recipients on the ever-changing topic of immigration policy. On Monday, Medford's Unete invited anyone concerned about potential immigration changes to view a presentation by a local immigration lawyer. This comes as President Donald Trump is expected to address the topic of DACA in his State of the Union Address.
"There's a lot of fear in the community because there's just so much uncertainty," said Unete Program Director Kathy Keesee. "We never know from one day to the next what the changes might be... or enforcement actions here in the valley."
Immigration Lawyer John Almaguer says about 60 people came to the Medford Library to hear a presentation about what policies to know and to ask questions about their particular concerns.
The next meeting is expected to happen February 11th.
