Judge A. Gail Prudenti, Interim Dean and Executive Director of the
Center for Children, Families and the Law announces Hofstra’s new immigration clinic.
The first law clinic of its kind on Long Island, the Deportation Defense Clinic (DDC) will protect immigrants who are particularly vulnerable to the consequences of increased deportation enforcement. The clinic will concentrate on two high-risk populations: immigrants with removal orders against them and DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients — undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children and have spent most of their lives here. It will offer a full range of no-cost services for individuals and families.
