demand this administration stop criminalizing undocumented immigrants? Um, this administration didnt do that. Somebody else did that for them:
8 U.S. Code § 1325 - Improper entry by alien
In fact if you want to call enforcing our laws criminalization I guess well have to hang this one on George W. Bush, as well as Barack Hussein Obama, who apparently also voted for it before he voted against it:
While immigration is typically handled through civil law in the United States,2 an often-overlooked part of the United States immigration system is the criminalization of illegal entry or reentry into the country.3 Although these crimes were written into the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act,4 immigration officials did not typically refer immigrants caught entering illegally for criminal prosecution until the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) implemented Operation Streamline in 2005.5
So get out there and protest in the mid-day sun if you wish. Mad dogs everywhere will approve your action.
OMG! Is that racist?!

Is this on? How many will show up?
“criminalizing undocumented immigrants” —what a tortured phrase. It’s a crime to cross the border without documents, a misdemeanor or felony. What is already a crime cannot be “criminalized”.
