On Wednesday, ICIRR joined thousands of protestors on the streets of Chicago to rally against President Donald Trump’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and leave Congress to legislate a replacement by March 5. We stand in support of our DACAmented and undocumented neighbors and loved ones and the Protection For All Movement, led by those directly affected by the Administration’s cruel decision. We believe that every person deserves to live with respect and dignity. Immigrants are the current targets of injustice in a long string of injustices committed against targeted communities. We see, hear, and support our undocumented loved ones. We must stand together and call for Protection For All!
