SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - Advocacy groups, expressing anger and frustration, staged a rally at San Diego State Friday calling for a "fix" for dreamers, after DACA was left out of the budget deal.
Protesters are demanding that Congress take action on DACA to immediately remove the threat of deportation for nearly 800,000 dreamers.
According to immigration advocacy group “Indivisible”, another round of dreamers will lose their DACA and deportation protections Friday.
Protests erupted Thursday at the Senate building after Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer and Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell celebrated their bipartisan budget achievement that does not include protections for dreamers.
According to Alliance San Diego, 40,000 of San Diego County residents are DACA recipients.
