(CBS) — Sixty people rallied in Melrose Park for an end to deportations that split families, and said they want the President to make the policy change by executive order.
Many were undocumented, or have family members who are in the United States illegally.
One was Denise, who chose not to give her last name. She is 16. Her parents brought her into the U.S. when she was one year old. She said she is not afraid to say publicly that she is undocumented. But she said she is afraid for the rest of her family, including younger siblings who were born in the U.S., and are therefore citizens.
