Students hold protest against DACA rescission at Little Rock Central

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Before class on Friday morning, students at Little Rock Central High School gathered together to protest the ending of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

According to the Arkansas Times, nearly 125 students joined the protest at the corner of Park Street and Daisy Bates Drive.

This comes a day after a small group of students stood outside Hall High School to protest the Trump Administration's decision.

The students at Central who showed up in support of classmates who benefit from the DACA program reportedly chanted "Education not deportation" and "Tigers Against Hate".

Arkansas Times reporter David Koon said Central High Principal Nancy Rousseau was on hand for the event. Rousseau said there are DACA recipients that attend the school.
