DACA Recipients Launch 250-Mile, 15-Day March from New York to D.C.

HeadlineFeb 16, 2018

Meanwhile, DACA recipients and their supporters have launched a 250-mile, 15-day march from New York City to Washington, D.C., where they plan a mass protest ahead of DACA’s March 5 expiration date. This is DACA recipient Li Adorno, speaking at the start of the march in Lower Manhattan.

Li Adorno: “I feel like my parents and people around the country who are undocumented have sacrificed so much. And like to this day, they’re criminalized every night in the evening news, right? And we feel like that’s not fair. We’re asking for dignity and respect for everyone, right? Not just the DREAMers, because right now we’re getting a lot of attention. … Politicians keep promising us like reforms or fixes, but nothing ever happens, right? So this walk is not necessarily towards politicians to change their mind, but more towards the community. We see that the community responds better than they do.”
