Volunteers from Keep Tucson Together and attorney Margo Cowan provide legal assistance to persons effected by changes to DACA, or Deferred Action Childhood Arrival, which provided legal protection to those brought into the United States illegally as children, at a clinic at Pueblo Magnet High School, Tucson, Arizona, USA. "Edna", 21, entered the USA on a legal visa at the age of 9, along with her family. Her father intended to sat in the USA to work. Her family chose to overstay their visas to avoid prolonged separation from her father. She applied for and was granted DACA status, which lapsed in August, 2017. With changes to DACA, she faces possible deportation if stopped by law enforcement. She is a nursing student under the protection of DACA, but may lose that right, as she lost her job when she lost her DACA status. She is now unemployed. She initially arrived in the USA with her parents and two siblings. Her parents then had two US born children. She attends the clinic to be prepared with legal advice should she be stopped by law enforcement and be slated for deportation to Mexico. Volunteer, Sally Rusk, left, provides asistance.
