AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– Rep. Mike Coffman has gone against his own party to protect DREAMERS. Despite that, he was the subject of a rally outside his office in Aurora on Thursday.

Coffman, a Republican representing Aurora, filed a petition that would force Congress to vote on a bill protecting children brought to the U.S. illegally after Pres. Trump repealed the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA program.
