On Sept. 4, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) with a six month delay for Congress to pass a new law. DACA was an Obama-era policy which granted immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children permits to work and study. Nearly 800,000 people were DACA recipients and there are over 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S., according to Pew Research Center. Thousands gathered to protest the ending of DACA in front of Trump Tower in New York City on Sept. 9. The rally and protest were organized by the immigration reform group Movimiento Cosecha.
