Google Will Provide $250,000 for DACA Applications
Google has announced that it will be donating a quarter of a million dollars to cover application fees for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). This will enable the company to cover application fees for more than 500 immigrants.
Google has been supporting DACA recipients since the program started in 2012 and has joined several other companies in blocking President Trump from ending the program. Kent Walker, Google's senior vice president, wrote in a blog that immigrants had helped America advance technology and science. These advancements have created millions of new jobs in these industries leading Google to stress the importance of protecting the DACA program and its applicants.
Google intends to advocate for changes to help immigrants through immigration reform. The company will be donating the money to the immigration nonprofit United We Dream. At Pikes Peak Immigration, we commend Google for making this donation. We encourage Google to continue supporting immigrants, and we encourage other large companies to do the same.
If you have any questions regarding DACA or the specifics of your case, please call Pikes Peak Immigration to schedule a consultation or meeting.
