Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr and another professor at Cornell Law School have secured a $1.5 million grant to fund Path2Papers, an innovative nonprofit that provides legal assistance to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients and DACA-eligible individuals. Based at Cornell Law, Path2Papers offers legal consultations and guidance to DACA-eligible San Francisco Bay-area residents and Cornell students, the Cornell Daily Sun explained. Steve noted that DACA’s precarity highlights the importance of Path2Papers’ work. “The DACA program could be terminated by the courts or [a] new administration, [and] many DACA recipients don’t know if they’ll have legal residency options.” Path2Papers has already yielded results, the Daily Sun noted. Since the program’s launch in January, over 180 DACA or DACA-eligible individuals and employers have registered for a consultation, 50 percent of whom are potentially eligible for a work-related visa or other path to a green card.
