DACA is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program which had been established by President Obama. It deferred deportation proceedings on certain persons who had been brought to the U.S. as children without proper immigration paperwork. The Trump administration announced on September 5 that it was rescinding the program.
The protest took place in downtown Cincinnati outside of Senator Rob Portman’s office. One Heritage member created a sign saying “DON’T BE DEPORTMAN. SAVE DACA.” Other Heritage signs said “SHAMEFUL,” “KEEP DACA,” and “STANDING ON THE SIDE OF LOVE.”
