Demonstrators began in Moore Square and advanced to the sidewalk across from the Governor’s Mansion.
“The governor that we have now is writing laws against immigrants, which is just so unfair and also unfair to our president to deny his executive order for the immigrants,” said demonstrator Jean Busby.
President Barack Obama’s executive order would prevent the deportation of millions of working illegal immigrants in the United States.
“We can work together with the government and politics to find a better way to live together,” said demonstrator Jorge Torres. “We are a lot of people.”
Organizers say they want to educate the public about immigration rights and the economic impact immigrants have on North Carolina.
