Several immigration activists hold sit-in at Michael Bennet’s Denver office demanding action to help DACA recipients – The Denver Post

Seven activists have been holding a sit-in inside Sen. Michael Bennet’s Denver office Wednesday, demanding his immediate help on passing legislation to help immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children.

The protesters were demanding that Colorado’s Democratic senator, who has been active on immigration in recent years, set up a meeting with other senators to discuss the program that helps such immigrants — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — issue a public statement about the meeting and set up a separate meeting with constituents in Colorado.

The protest comes a day after the White House announced that President Donald Trump likely wouldn’t extend a March 5 deadline, when work permits will start to expire for DACA recipients, or Dreamers, as they’re often known.

Earlier in the day, several activist groups marched to the senator’s office from Civic Center Park. The group inside his lobby has been live-streaming its protest, which continued into Wednesday evening.
