A virtual public meeting that addresses DACA issues within the Nevada System of Higher Education is scheduled from 4 to 5 p.m. April 28.
DACA, an acronym for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, allows some undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children to remain in the country and become eligible for a work permit. Program participants cannot have felonies or serious misdemeanors on their records.
Chancellor Thomas Reilly, Michael Shamoon from UNLV legal services, and Nevada State College Dreamers Club president Nayelli Rico Lopez are among those scheduled to speak.
