Hundreds of people descended on downtown Los Angeles to express displeasure with the Trump administration’s overturning of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, which allowed some children of undocumented immigrants to receive a respite from deportation and others to acquire work permits. With Trump’s latest decree, nearly 800,000 DACA recipients could have an uncertain future in the United States. Scores of DACA recipients, or “Dreamers,” as they are known, marched through downtown L.A. on Tuesday, Sept. 5, with allies and supporters, traveling down Cesar Chavez Avenue, eventually making their way to L.A. City Hall and the U.S. Federal Building.
