    TODAY: Students plan walkout, rally at Cornynís office to protest end to DACA

    TODAY: Students plan walkout, rally at Cornynís office to protest end to DACA



    10:15 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017 Local News

    U.S. Sen. John Cornyn says he's optimistic about DACA solution

    Students in Austin are set to join a walkout Thursday morning to protest against the Trump administrationís moves to end the deportation deferment program for children known as DACA.

    Organizers of the walkout plan to hold a rally at 11:30 a.m. outside the Austin office of U.S. Sen. John Cornyn of Texas to demand that he and other lawmakers in Congress pass immigration policies that would create a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and permanent protection for those eligible for the DACA program.




    The children of undocumented immigrants who were brought into the country as minors had been protected from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program begun under former President Barack Obama.

    President Donald Trump ordered an end to the program by early 2018 unless Congress could present him with legislation to resolve the status of those immigrant children.

    Organizers said walkouts are being planned in other Texas cities, including El Paso, Houston and Dallas.




    Protesters also rallied outside Cornynís office last month in a demonstration organized by the Texas Sierra Club, United We Dream and the Austin Environmental Justice Team. The Oct. 25 event also opposed Trumpís plan to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

    They don't have to convince Cornyn - he's been pro illegal for decades.
