Protesters in Washington DC who support DACA aren’t making a very good case for their position. In fact, it looks more like an angry mob than a protest.
Here are some details from the Washington Post:
After Sessions’s announcement, scores of protesters left the White House and headed for the Department of Justice. They loudly jeered and booed as they marched in front of the Trump Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, then sat down a block away in the middle of the intersection, in front of the U.S. Department of Justice.
“Yes we can,” they chanted in English and Spanish.
Rebecca Ruiz, a 56 year old who works in housekeeping, came from Pittsburgh to march for her son, a 24-year-old DACA recipient, who she brought from Mexico City when he was 12.
The young man now has a good job at a bank and speaks better English than Spanish, Ruiz said. She described herself as “scared and sad” for both her son and the country they now call home.
“Mexico is now bad and dangerous, I came here looking for a better life for me and my family. That is why we’re here.,” Ruiz said. “This is my son’s home.”
Belem Orozco, 26, arrived in the United States from Mexico when she was 7. She is now a DACA recipient and says she was not surprised by the president’s decision.
“I’m taking this as motivation,” Orozco said. “If the President thinks this announcement is going to make us go away, it’s going to do the opposite.”

What these protesters don’t seem to get is that Trump is trying to fix something that Obama should never have done. Laws are made by Congress, not the President.
