Newsletter Get our Essential California newsletter On Tuesday morning, hundreds of Los Angeles high school students walked out of class to rally at the downtown federal building in support of an Obama-era policy that protects 700,000 young immigrants from deportation.A few hours earlier and 2,669 miles to the northeast, the U.S. Supreme Court had heard arguments about the legality of DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
