Smartphone app launched to help illegal immigrants avoid deportation

From washingtontimes.com:

Immigration advocates on Wednesday launched a new mobile app designed to help illegal immigrants to take advantage of President Obama’s non-deportation policy for so-called Dreamer immigrants.

Known as “Pocket DACA” — a reference to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the government’s name for the legalization program — the free app gives advice on how to apply for the program and lists groups immigrants can contact for help.

The app allows users to do a pre-screening interview so they can see if they are likely to qualify, including age and residency requirements. It also contains information about how to avoid immigration scams and to get access to scholarships to help pay the fees required by DACA.
