Help for San Diego residents seeking temporary work permits

In our post on July 6, we outlined the new immigration policy that may help as many as 1.39 million young people in San Diego and across the U.S. who are currently in the country without legal documentation and wish to obtain work permits. Certain undocumented immigrants seeking temporary work permits will now have the opportunity to receive one for $465.

Some exemptions to the fees will be considered, but the majority of the costs will be taken on by applicants and not by taxpayers.
