Alejandro Lopez supporters fight deportation

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Supporters of Alejandro Lopez held a vigil and press conference Saturday aimed at stopping his deportation.

The group says Lopez was arrested after getting caught driving without a license. Since arriving in North Carolina at the age of sixteen Lopez has worked as a carpenter.

Friends and family say he has no criminal record and has paid his taxes. They don't think it's fair he should be separated from his wife and two children.

If Lopez is not permitted to stay, his deportation would take place at the end of this month.
