CSU campuses to provide immigration legal services, including Fresno State

News

The California State University system will soon launch a system-wide plan providing immigration legal services for students and staff.

Fresno State is one of those campuses.

These services provided will do two things: it is going to save students time and money.

Right now students could be driving several hours away to meet with an attorney and paying a lot of money for those services.

The CSU system is home to an estimated 9,500 undocumented students.

Over the next six months campuses will begin providing legal services like family-based petitions, assistance with filling out forms and DACA renewals.

Fresno State is partnering with Immigrant Legal Defense, a non-profit sponsored by the United Farm Workers Foundation.
