In addition to all the support the Dream Center has to offer, there are many legal resources available in Sacramento to undocumented students or students from mixed-status families.
The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA), in collaboration with Los Rios Community College District, offers free virtual/telephonic immigration consultations to Los Rios students, faculty, and staff. CHIRLA immigration services include:
- Immigration consultations
- DACA renewals
- Family-based immigration
- Know your rights
To make an appointment, visit CHIRLA and select Locations and Appointments from the menu.
Note: You are not required to state the nature of your case/question to college staff to make an appointment.
Free immigration legal services are available to students, staff, and faculty affiliated with the California community colleges. Priority for services is given to undocumented students, staff, and faculty. The immigration legal service providers offering services at the 65 campuses have developed scheduling, intake, and reporting processes that ensure student information remains confidential and protected.
Though all legal providers offer legal consultations and basic immigration benefit application assistance, some providers may offer additional services. Basic immigration legal assistance includes:
- Legal consultations to screen for immigration relief
- Deferred Action from Childhood Arrivals (DACA) renewals
- Family-based petitions
- Naturalization/citizenship applications
