CHICO, Calif. - The California State University system is offering up free legal services to its immigrant students and employees.

Funding for the services initially was provided by a one-time allocation of $7 million from the 2018 Budget Act to the California Department of Social Services to implement direct immigration legal services programs on CSU campuses, CSU announced online.

Services offered include a free general consultation, help with DACA renewals, and general assistance in filling out forms such as family-based petitions.

"I want to know like how long this whole DACA is going to happen," a Chico State student said. "We can more or less trust a little more, than the information online, because there is so much online that you read through and you just don't understand like what is real and what is not."

Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights will provide services for Chico State.

Currently, 22 California State Universities are offering these services. To learn more about the services offered, CLICK HERE.

The fog tucked us in last night, leaving for some surreal driving conditions on the roads. We see the potential for a repeat situation this evening for the valley.
