Group seeks end to deportations
Posted April 5, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — Across North Carolina Saturday, people seeking a change to federal immigration policy held rallies. "Not One More Deportation" events took place outside the Wake County Justice Center and the Durham Police Department.
Organizers sought to pressure President Barack Obama to use an executive order to stop deportations of illegal immigrants.
“We know the President doesn’t have to wait for Congress to use his executive power to stop the suffering of our communities,” said Yolanda Zavala, one of the event organizers. “He can expand the deferred action program he created for immigrant youth and stop deportations immediately.”
Rallies were also held in Asheville and Charlotte.
