California is among states suing to save DACA. Immigration is an important issue in the state. The University of California also filed a DACA lawsuit Friday. Approximately 800,000 individuals are enrolled in the program, many of whom work and receive education in the U.S. Many studies have shown that DACA has been very beneficial to these immigrants and has had no adverse impact on the U.S economy. The lawsuit was filed last Wednesday in a ny federal court on behalf of several attorneys general.
The DACA Program will not be ended right away.
The legal action by California, home to more than a quarter of the nation's almost 800,000 DACA participants, follows the University of California's lawsuit Friday against the Trump administration challenging its efforts to eliminate the anti-deportation program on "nothing more than unreasoned executive whim".

At least 3,000 people rallied Saturday outside the Trump International Hotel and Tower in New York City, waving signs that read; "No one is illegal" and "Immigrants welcome". "But, we would also certainly provide as much support to any of our students as we possibly could".
"I'm preparing for worst case scenario", said Ernesto Lopez of Lacey. A majority of them are not criminals or causing any trouble because they are normal people just like us trying to make an honest living.
