Deportation Protests



AP reports immigration advocates and supporters rallied Saturday in cities across the country in a renewed effort to push President Barack Obama to put a freeze on deportations.  While the Obama administration has deported hundreds of thousands of immigrant annually as part of a concerted political strategy to persuade Congress to pass comprh3ensive immigration reform, reform proposals have failed to this point.

 April 5 was chosen as the day to stage the protests by a project calling itself Not One More Deportation, which is affiliated with the National Day Laborer Organizing Network.
