Hundreds of people gathered on Boston Common Saturday to protest President Donald J. Trump’s recent actions to roll back DACA, which protected undocumented individuals who were brought to the United States as children. The Boston May Day Coalition organized the event through Facebook in partnership with the United American Indians of New England, Black Lives Matter - Boston, Veterans for Peace, Cosecha and many other local groups. Cata Santiago, a representative from Cosecha, an immigrant rights movement, spoke during the rally. “My DACA expires on November of next year. I am one of the people who falls under the gap — I can’t renew my DACA anymore. We need permanent protection,” she said.
