DACA

Julia Albarracin

On September 10, I attended a rally in Springfield in support of the beneficiaries of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).  The day before, I made three signs for the rally that read: "Defend DACA," "Dreamers, not Criminals," and "Dreamers are Here to Stay."

Over 200 people rallied outside the state capitol building in Springfield over the weekend to show support for immigrants.
