Trump just keeps messing up!
Yesterday his administration decided to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and people began to protest all over the country, including at the Trump Towers. Currently, 34 people were arrested in New York at the protest.
No injuries to protestors or police officers have been reported and the crowd has thinned since the protest started.
Officials said, If protesters were cooperative and turned over their personal information to police, including name, address and date of birth, they were given a special ticket and were not fingerprinted. Those who refused to turn over their personal information were fingerprinted.
New York City’s Mayor wanted DACA beneficiaries to be cautious while protesting.
“Obviously if someone, now with this new information that we are getting out of Washington today, is a DACA recipient, I would urge them to be very careful about anything like civil disobedience. There are many other people who can undertake the civil disobedience. I wouldn’t advise the DACA recipients to do it. In this city, there has been an approach that it is mindful,” said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
There are nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children have been granted protection under DACA since 2012.
Protests were also in D.C., Chicago and Los Angeles. Be safe out there if you are protesting.
