THE HILL: DACA Arguments Draw Large Protests At Supreme Court

THE HILL, Nov. 12, 2019: DACA Arguments Draw Large Protests At Supreme Court 

The arguments at the Supreme Court over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program drew crowds of protesters from around the country on Tuesday.

Throngs of demonstrators gathered at the steps of the Supreme Court in support of the DACA program, which President Trump moved to end in 2017. Multiple groups quickly challenged his authority to terminate it, and the case has finally reached the nation’s highest court.

DACA has provided protections for hundreds of thousands of so-called Dreamers against deportation.

Protesters filled the Washington streets in front of the court as the initial oral arguments ended, chanting “Up, up with liberation. Down, down with deportation.”
