USA: Los Angeles marches for «Dreamers», decrying Trump's DACA repeal

SOT, Abby Walker, protester (English): «Not you? It well.» SOT, Emma Kennedy, protester (English): «Yeah it will eventually, so we’re today and I feel inspired but it’s also so sad that we have to be doing this.» SOT, Abby Walker, protester (English): «No shit.» SOT, Darienne Jordan, protester (English): «The thing about it is that this country was founded based on immigration, everybody is... Еще here and unless you are a Native American, you are an immigrant so we have no right to tell people that they don’t belong here so we are protesting to say keep DACA: our dreamers deserve to be here.» Thousands of protesters marched through the streets of Los Angeles, Sunday, to protest against US President Donald Trump's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme, last week. A handful of anti-DACA protesters gathered across from the larger protest, which proceeded to march down a main road after a number of speeches. Protesters repeated chants such as “whose streets, our streets» and «NO Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA». Arturo Sernas, a pro-DACA protester, commented on the event as protesters marched saying, “It’s great to see all this energy that’s going to take a stand against Donald Trump and the Republican Party and all those politicians that say that some people are less than others: we’re here to say otherwise.» US Attorney General Jeff Sessions' officially announced Trump's decision to rescind the DACA programme last week, leaving Congress to come up with alternative legislation to regulate the people under DACA's protection within the next six months. The administration of former US President Barack Obama established the DACA programme in 2012 to enable migrants, who were brought illegally to the country as children, to apply for a temporary right to study or work in the USA. A successful application would mean that they are able to defer the threat of possible deportation for another two years.
