Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

On July 16, 2021, a Federal District Court judge in Texas issued a ruling in Texas v. U.S. limiting the DACA program and declaring it unlawful. Effective immediately, the court’s decision prohibits the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) from approving any new DACA applications. While new applications will no longer be approved, renewals will continue to move forward. It is also important to note that individuals who currently have DACA will keep their protections, and pending renewal applications will be processed normally.

CA PIF Outreach & Communications Workgroup Patient-Facing Materials

CPCA leads an Outreach & Communications Workgroup under the CA-PIF efforts – they have created three community-facing documents to help consumers navigate the health system, prepare for a meeting with an attorney around public charge and information about how to obtain COVID-19 testing and services. Resources are also available in Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Tagalog and Korean.

Training Request: Promoting Safe Access to Care for California Immigrants

The California Protecting Immigrant Families (PIF) Coalition’s Outreach and Communications Workgroup formed an online training request form for partners to request trainings based on their communities’ needs. The overarching message of the trainings is simply that California immigrants and undocumented individuals are eligible to use public services such as COVID-19 testing, treatment and vaccines, Medi-Cal, CalFresh, WIC, Head Start, Food Banks and more.
