15 Arrested During DACA Lawsuit Protest at Texas AG’s Office

Breitbart reports:
Police arrested 15 protesters outside the office of the Texas Attorney General on Thursday. Organizers managed to draw only 50 people to demonstrate against the State’s new sanctuary city ban and General Ken Paxton’s threat to sue the federal government to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) troopers arrested 15 people engaged in a sit-in outside the attorney general’s office after they blocked a roadway and refused orders to leave, according to a Fox 7 report in Austin. The Mexican Consulate in Austin confirmed to the local Fox News affiliate that four of the arrested are DACA recipients.

The protest stemmed from a letter sent by Attorney General Paxton and nine other states calling for an end to the DACA program initiated by an executive action by the Obama Administration. The program, not enacted by Congress, provides temporary legal status and work authorization for those aliens brought to the U.S. as children.
