Thousands rally in DC to call for DACA continuation
About 100 young people from Connecticut were among the thousands in the nation’s capital calling for the continuation of a controversial immigration program keeping many of them in the country.
The people rallied outside the White House on the fifth anniversary of the "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" program, otherwise known as “DACA.”
The program protects children, brought here illegally by their parents, from deportation, and allows them to attend college.
