Defending DACA at Foley Square

P1070888

Here’s another submission from Lower East Side-based photographer Pat Arnow. She was at Foley Square last night, where local activists gathered to defend DACA. The Trump administration moved yesterday to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects young undocumented immigrants from documentation.

Local elected officials and activist groups responded swiftly to the news, vowing to fight the order and to influence the debate in Congress over a new version of DACA.
