CLAY COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A national movement made its way to the Wabash Valley.
On Thursday, Faith in Indiana held a vigil on the steps of the Clay County Jail ICE Detention Center.
They were there to show their support for the "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" or DACA program.
It allows young illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S.
The program was set to expire in early March, but it's been temporarily extended.
Attendees say they're fighting to keep immigrant families together.
"They have not committed a crime. They are not criminals, and we should not be spending our resources on tearing families apart," Carolyn Higginbotham said,
Opposers of DACA say the country needs to focus on securing the U.S. borders.
