A mere four illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program showed up for an anti-President Trump protested during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.
In an effort to halt the parade, the four illegal aliens sat down in the street but were quickly removed by New York City Police Department (NYPD) officers, according to the New York Daily News.
In September, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on behalf of the Trump administration that the DACA program, which gave nearly 800,000 illegal aliens work permits and protected status to remain in the U.S., would be ended in March 2018.

Since the announcement, DACA illegal aliens, open borders organizations, corporate interests, and the cheap labor industry have united with the Democrat and GOP political establishments to scramble together multiple amnesty bills that could give more than three million illegal aliens a pathway to U.S. citizenship.
The four illegal aliens spoke to the Daily News, proclaiming that “they’re the ones who shape a democracy.”
“What we’re trying to remind people is that they’re the ones who shape a democracy, and it’s their voices that shape what the future is,” 26-year-old illegal alien DACA recipient Hector Martinez said.
“Today was successful in that we were able to remind the immigrant community that they don’t have to live in fear,” Martinez said. “When you work together, you can change the way things are.”

Another illegal alien at the tiny protest, 26-year-old Piash Ahamed said the immigrant community is demanding “permanent protection for undocumented youth and more focus on the fact that all undocumented youth are suffering, whether they’re DACA or not.”
Illegal alien Barbara Hernandez, 25-years-old, said the unsuccessful protest was “for everyone, not just the Dreamers, but all 11 million” illegal aliens in the U.S.
The group of illegal aliens told the Daily News that they are planning a similar protest in Washington, DC, next month.
Since DACA’s inception, more than 2,100 illegal alien recipients of the program have had their work permits and protected status revoked because they were revealed to be either criminals or gang members.
Every year, American taxpayers are forced to foot the bill for the 12 to 30 million illegal aliens living in the U.S., an annual cost that totals roughly $116 billion or approximately $8,075 per taxpayer, Breitbart News reported.
