Houston Non-Profit Helps with DACA Fees

"[C]andidates are required to dole out an application fee of $465.  Aware of the financial challenge this poses, one Houston nonprofit, Protectors of the Dream, announced on Tuesday its intention to award grants to cover the application fee for 10 to 25 lucky Houston, Texas undocumented applicants, according to ABC.  "This generation of young scholars and activists that has come to be knows as the Dream Act generation is amazing," Jacob Monty, a representative of the nonprofit, explains.  "We are inspiring our business and professional community to lend the resources, skills, and vision to this cause to lobby for more profound immigration reform.  We want to start by alleviating the burden of filing fees for Dreamers."" - HuffPo, Aug. 16, 2012.
