Hundreds marched to defend DACA recipients in Grand Rapids



Hundreds of Grand Rapidians held a vigil and marched around downtown Grand Rapids Tuesday, September 5, 2017 in response to the Attorney General Jeff Sessions announcement that the Trump administration was going to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program also known as DACA.

The vigil started at Rosa Parks Circle a little after 7 p.m. and was well organized. Local leaders from Movimiento Cosecha GR instructed 14 volunteers who donned orange vests on how to be marshals to ensure a smooth march and how to address the media and police.
