Immigrant rights advocates held rallies at detention centers and government buildings across the United States on Saturday to urge President Barack Obama to use his executive powers to stop deportations.
One of about 50 rallies planned by the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) took place on Friday in Columbus, Ohio. About 75 protesters marched past the LeVeque Tower, which houses offices of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). They chanted "Two million too many!" and "Not one more!"
The march included undocumented immigrants and family members, clergy, LGBT rights activists, and other community supporters.
