The organizing committee will help Vietnamese immigrants better understand President Donald Trump’s new executive orders on immigration, announced on January 25.  
 
Trump’s new executive orders will not only affect those immigrants that do not have lawful immigration status, but they could also affect other immigrants that do not yet have U.S. citizenship.  For example, immigrants who have had problems with law enforcement, have not told the truth to government agencies or the immigration service, or have a deportation order that they have not complied with, will be at greater risk of deportation than before.  
  
Presently, President Trump has not issued an order cancelling Obama’s “DACA” program that helped many youth that came to the U.S. before the age of 16, but Trump could issue such an order in the near future.  The organizing committee will also provide advice to youth who may be impacted by such an order.
