On September 5, 2017, the Department of Justice announced the wind-down of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program. After a short break, participants will then march to Placita Olvera in downtown Los Angeles, across from Union Station, where the demonstration is expected to end about 7 p.m. She said in a lawsuit filed on Friday that ended the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program, or DACA, violates the due process of about 800,000 beneficiaries, known as "dreamers". We evaluate applications from undocumented prospective students under our need-blind admissions policy with a commitment to meet 100 percent of demonstrated financial need regardless of country of citizenship or immigration status.
