KANSAS CITY, Mo. — About two dozen people gathered on Sunday in Kansas City, Missouri, to make their stance on an immigration policy known.

Protesters marched peacefully from the city’s federal courthouse to city hall to show support for the protection of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

The policy lets those who were brought into the United States as children, without documentation, avoid deportation.

Attendees want the program to create a path to citizenship.

KCMO Mayor Quinton Lucas spoke to the group.

Latinx United for KC organized the event.
