Families march in uptown to raise awareness

Posted: Updated:

A march is happening Saturday in Uptown Charlotte and it is in an effort to bring attention to deportations and there impact on families.

The Latin American Coalition along with Untied 4 the Dream is hosting the March , which will run through Uptown Charlotte. 

The deportations which are happening all over the country, are classified by the government to be people who are high priority removals such as criminals. 

The Latin American Coalition however says that the reality is that a large portion of these deportations are honest, hardworking parents of children who are U.S. citizens.

Between July 1, 2010 and September30, 2012,  nearly a quarter of all deportations involved parents of children who were U.S. citizens.

The rally Saturday is an attempt to bring some awareness to the impact these deportations are having on families right here in Charlotte.
