Despite President Donald Trump’s tentative agreement with Democratic lawmakers to work on a plan to accommodate so-called Dreamers, local activists will protest Saturday to keep pressure on politicians to save the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and legalize all immigrants.

The march is being organized by several groups, including the Brown Berets de TejAztlan, Houston Socialist Movement, Mexicanos en Accion Patriotas, Organizacion Latino Americana Pro-Derecho Del Inmigrante and Refuse Fascism-Houston.

The protest will begin at 2 p.m. at Irvington Park at 1000 W Cavalcade St. From there, demonstrators will march to Moody Park, the site of the 1978 riots where Cinco de Mayo revelers clashed with police after the killers of Vietnam veteran Joe Campos Torres were fined $1 for his death.
