Hotline

GLAHR offers a “hotline” that provides Latino immigrants and their families, in the event that they are mistreated, abused, or detained, with information and referrals. Each week, the hotline receives anywhere from fifty to one hundred calls, allowing GLAHR to assist Latinos as they face abuse from employers, police officers, immigration agents, or in detention centers. 

Our Hotline Number: 770-457-5232

We encourage people to call on us Monday through Fridays from 9am to 5pm. However, please do not hesitate to leave a voice mail at any time. We promise to return calls in a timely fashion. 

When calling the hotline, please have the following information ready regarding a person being detained:

  • Full Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Country of Birth
  • Date of Entry to the United States

DACA Renewal

We are available for assistance with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Renewals

To make an appointment call us at 770-457-5232.

If you have questions about renewing your DACA, please click here.

DACA Advisory: On June 18, 2020, the Supreme Court found that the Trump Administration’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was unlawful. Thus, the DACA program remains in place. However, we are waiting to see how the Trump Administration applies the ruling and for it to publish guidance on how it will continue to process DACA applications.

DACA Renewal: For those individuals with DACA, your DACA status remains in place. If your DACA is set to expire in the next four to six months, we advise that you renew your DACA immediately. If your DACA has already expired, you remain eligible to renew.
1st Time DACA: If you are interested in applying for DACA for the first time, you may be eligible to apply for DACA if you meet the following requirements. If you do meet the requirements below, we ask that you begin collecting documents establishing eligibility. However, please wait until the Trump Administration has issued guidance before filing:
  1. Entered the United States before your 16th birthday; 
  2. Lived continuously (never left) in the U.S. since June 15, 2007;
  3. Present in the U.S. on June 15, 2012, and on every day since August 15, 2012;
  4. You must not have lawful immigration status at the time you apply for DACA;
  5. Be at least 15 years old at the time you apply for DACA and under 31 years-old on June 15, 2012. (If you are currently in deportation proceedings, have a voluntary departure order, or have a deportation order, and are not in immigration detention, you may apply for DACA even if you are not yet 15 years old.);
  6. Have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a general education development (GED) certificate, be an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or U.S. armed forces, or “be in school” on the date you submit your DACA application.
