DREAMers Stage Protests at Senators’ Offices, Schumer’s Home over DACA

HeadlineJan 24, 2018

Immigration rights activists held protests at the offices of several senators on Tuesday to protest against lawmakers’ passage of a short-term spending bill that did not include any protections for DREAMers. Protesters also gathered outside the home of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, who capitulated to the Republican lawmakers and voted for the spending bill, after having vowed to oppose any bill that did not include a resolution on DACA—the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program—that President Trump rescinded last year. Senator Schumer now says he will no longer back plans to fund President Trump’s proposed billion-dollar border wall in exchange for a resolution on DACA.
