PASCO,WA- Nearly 800 people gathered at St. Patrick's Catholic Parish in Pasco Sunday evening to learn more about President Obama's Deferred Action Programs and who qualifies.

Nearly 4.4 million people in the country can get work permits and become legal citizens.  An estimated 90,000 people in this region are applicable.

Catholic Charities sponsored Sunday's information session.  Local immigration attorneys told people who qualifies and who does not.

Attorney Tom Roach said it was important to have these talks now so people can get documents together.

"Now is the time to start getting that stuff rather than waiting for 4.4 million people trying to get the same documents at the same place, at the same time.  Now is the time to get started," said Roach.

After the information session, attorneys answered additional questions from people.

They explained what the Deferred Action Programs are, the requirements, and how to qualify.

For more information or if you have questions about upcoming dates, contact Roach & Bishop Attorneys at Law in Pasco.
