WASHINGTON – Thousands of supporters of “Dreamers” who came to the U.S. as undocumented children rallied outside the Supreme Court Tuesday as the justices heard oral arguments to determine the legality of the Trump administration’s policy to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
“We are all Dreamers,” one protester said. “We are no different from Americans.”
Seong Won Kim said DACA “means everything. It means my future.” Kim said “Dreamers” can work and go to college legally thanks to the DACA program started by President Barack Obama in 2012. The program allows young immigrants to avoid deportation.
“I want more than DACA,” she said.
DACA recipients and plaintiffs in the lawsuit walked out of the Supreme Court after the oral arguments ended with their hands in the air.
