Dozens of students, faculty and others at Oklahoma State University stood in solidarity Tuesday. This after the Trump administration
announced plans to end a two year program designed to safeguard children of illegal immigrants from being deported.
The demonstration was against the ending of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA. It has been in place for two years
after its creation under the Obama administration. The program has protected nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants
brought to the U.S. as children from being deported.
President Trump asked Congress Tuesday to figure out a better solution. But some at the protest said they may not be able to wait for that decision.
Right now, those protected by DACA could face deportation in March.
Comments were made Tuesday by those protesting that they are not blaming anyone in particular for this outcome.
Their only goal is to stay right where they are.
The group met again last night to discuss the protest and plan future educational demonstrations on campus.
