University of Illinois students, faculty and staff rallied on the Urbana campus Wednesday in defense of DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
About 150 people participated in the rally, where several speakers called on the federal government to keep DACA. President Donald Trump announced he’s phasing out the program.
Daisy Cordelia is secretary of the local chapter of Alpha Psi Lambda, the nation’s first co-ed Latino fraternity. She said DACA recipients are innocent, since they came to the United States as kids at the average age of six.
