Meet Cesar Espinosa: After Surviving Harvey, He's Fighting for his Future as Trump Rescinds DACA

In a major attack on immigrant communities across the United States, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has announced the Trump administration is rescinding the DACA program, which gives nearly 800,000 young immigrants permission to live and work in the United States. President Obama implemented DACA in 2012, after nearly a decade of massive grassroots organizing and direct action protests by undocumented youth across the country. Obama called Tuesday’s announcement "wrong," "self-defeating" and "cruel." Sessions’s announcement Tuesday morning sparked immediate protests across the country, with crowds taking to the streets in Minneapolis, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and Houston. In New York City, 34 people were arrested during a sit-in at Trump Tower, led by undocumented activists.
