Description of the video:  

Welcome to the second episode of MALN Opinion+! We are excited to launch a weekly program dedicated to discussing the concerns and opinions of Massachusetts’s Latino community.

This week we spoke with Eva Millona, President and CEO of Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy (MIRA) Coalition, on the reinstatement of DACA, the Public Charge Rule, and the recent sweeping changes to the U.S. citizenship test. 


Millona explained that 15,000 individuals within the Commonwealth may be immediately eligible to apply for DACA benefits, while there are currently 5,480 DACA recipients within the state. The MIRA Coalition offers free DACA technical assistance and support, referral services, and financial aid for the renewal application fee from the Eos Foundation.
