Online pro-immigration groups with close ties to the Democratic Party are working to raise money for The DACA Renewal Fund operated.
The immigrants brought into the U.S illegally by their parents, known as Dreamers, should apply before Oct. 5 to renew their work permits for another two years.
“Many of the immigrants who are students or low-wage earners can’t afford the $495 application fee.” said in a statement FWD.us.
FWD.us, primarily funded by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, is a pro-immigration group lobbying for changes to U.S. immigration policies.
Headed by the Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, FWD.us, is aiming to improve the US science and technology education system.
Today the FWD.us is mobilizing the tech community to help undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children to reapply for a program that shields them from deportation.
According to a report by FWD.us, 91 percent of DACA recipients are employed. At least 75 percent of the largest companies in America are benefiting from “Dreamers” because they have employees who identifies as a DACA employee.
Technology companies such as Apple Inc, Alphabet Inc’s Google Inc, Microsoft Corp and Facebook have made strong public statements against Trump’s policy and voiced support for employees affected by the change.
