The protest focused specifically on Trump’s decision to end DACA (Deferred Action Childhood Arrived programs), a couple weeks prior. The program was started under President Obama and aims to protect young immigrants who are undocumented. The democratic Reps. were arrested on charges of civil disobedience alongside other protesters.
Our Take: Immigration policy is changing quickly. Currently, congress is debating how to save DACA before the program expires beginning in March. It is important to stay up to date on this debate.
