In June, Attorney General Paxton threatened to sue the federal government if DACA is not rescinded by September.
Youth, workers and immigrant families of United We Dream and Worker's Defense Project gathered in front of his office located on 14th Street at around 3 p.m. with banners.
KVUE's Tina Shively was at the protest streaming live on Facebook:
Paxton's office released the following statement in response to the protests:
“We’re fortunate to live in a great country where the First Amendment matters and people have the right to express their opinions freely and hold peaceful protests. It’s my sworn duty to defend the Constitution and enforce the laws passed by the Texas Legislature.”
