"Do not demonize diversity, Defend dreamers" reads the sign. Supporters of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, rallied outside the White House and then marched to the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington D.C. on Tuesday September 5, 2017 in reaction to President Trump's expected announcement to end the Obama-era immigration program. The program granted work permits to 790,000 undocumented immigrants who came into the U.S. prior to their 16th birthday. Those protected under DACA are known as "Dreamers." (Photo by Jeff Malet)
