Hundreds of activists rallied from macarthur park, to eco park to olvera street in los angeles on september 10th, 2017. they were protesting against the trump administration's efforts to end daca. this would phase out protections from deportation for roughly 800,000 immigrants brought into the country illegally by their parents. in the photo a trump supporter screams with a megaphone at the protesters passing by to go back to where they came from.
