Undocumented Students to Stage Walkout to Support DACA

HeadlineNov 08, 2019

Undocumented students across the United States are walking out of school today in solidarity with immigrants who have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, an Obama-era program that grants work permits and deportation relief to nearly 1 million undocumented people who were brought to the country as children. Next week, the Supreme Court will begin to hear oral arguments in lawsuits demanding the Trump administration preserve DACA, which Trump tried to kill in 2017. Under the banner of “Home Is Here,” dozens of immigrants with DACA have led a 16-day march from New York to Washington, D.C., to pressure the Supreme Court to save the program.
