About a hundred protestors gathered at Penn State’s Old Main on Friday to show support for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. The demonstrators urged the community to tell their elected officials to take a stand.
Chanting “No hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here,” the protest marched from the Old Main lawn to the Allen Street gate downtown.
Shoba Wadhia is the director of Penn State’s Center for Immigrants’ Rights Clinic. She spoke to the protestors about common misunderstandings surrounding the administration’s decision to end DACA.
