More than 200 people gathered at Brooklyn's Grand Army Plaza on Saturday night, and then marched to the nearby home of Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer.
"We want to remind Sen. Schumer that 122 undocumented students lose their status every single day," a man said during the demonstration.
That figure, calculated by the Center for American Progress, is one that rally participants said will only grow in the weeks ahead.
Congress adjourned Friday without passing legislation that would protect those currently a part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA).
Earlier this year, the Trump administration announced a plan to end the Obama-era immigration policy that gives legal status to some undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.
"It means more anxiety and more pain for many immigrant communities that are already feeling threatened and targeted under this administration," said Walter Barrientes, an organizer for Make the Road New York.
Many of the more than 750,000 DACA recipients nationwide were hoping that a legislative fix for DACA recipients would be included in the short-term spending bill that passed this week.
Those who took part in the rally Saturday said Schumer could have done more to include provisions in the legislation that would've protected future "dreamers."
"He failed to support us 100 percent," said Zuleima Dominguez, a DACA recipient. "He was saying throughout the year that he was going to support us, that he was going to defend us, but he didn't."
NY1 reached out to the senator for comment, but we did not hear back at the time this story went on-air.
DACA recipients, their families, and supporters say they'll continue to pressure Schumer until a solution can be reached.
