KGO-TV (ABC Affiliate, San Francisco): DACA Program Still in Legal Limbo, a Year After Trump Tried to End it

September 27, 2018

In a September 28 broadcast, ABC Affiliate KGO-TV featured a pro bono legal clinic that offered free legal assistance to undocumented Dreamers hoping to renew their DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) permits. Organized by O’Melveny, O’Melveny client Ford Motor Company, and San Francisco nonprofit Legal Services for Children, the event  drew several Dreamers who were aided by O'Melveny attorneys along with attorneys from other participating law firms.

“We're providing this legal service free of cost to them, and helping them navigate the application forms,” said O’Melveny associate Ashish Sudhakaran, a volunteer interviewed for the segment along with two DACA recipients who received help.
