Candlelight vigil held in support of Dreamers

By  | 

LAREDO,Texas(KGNS)- With a decision yet to be made on DACA, local advocates have decided to show their support by holding a candlelight vigil.

DACA supporters hope their efforts will be the push needed to influence Congress to make a decision, as the lives of approximately 700,000 Dreamers are hanging in the balance.

A March 5th deadline has been set in the hopes of coming to an agreement.

However, the current proposal has not included any mention of extending protection for Dreamers.
