Minneapolis, MN — About 2500 people marched through the streets of Minneapolis, Sept. 5, demanding “Hands off DACA! No more deportations!” Protesters gathered at the Minnesota Republican Party headquarters and marched to downtown where they joined another powerful rally organized by Asamblea de Derechos Civiles.

One of the groups participating in the protest was the Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee (MIRAC). According to MIRAC member William Martinez, “Today’s attack on DACA by the Trump administration is a human rights catastrophe motivated by naked racism. We must all join together in solidarity to reject the politics of racist hate. We will stand together with people of all races and nationalities to say no human being is illegal, and we won’t stand for even one more deportation.”
