Organizers are expecting hundreds to show up at DeAnza Park Wednesday to show support to DACA.

At a 4 p.m. event, a coalition of groups will gather in protest of Tuesday's White House announcement to curtail the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, which prevents deportation for students who were brought to the country illegally as children.

Thousands of students in the state are expected to be affected by the policy change.

The park is located at 1000 N. Stone.
