Homemade signs decrying deportation being marched around Raleigh made it clear that President Obama is going to find it hard to dodge the heat surrounding his deportation policies. One sign said, “Obama, you can’t court us and deport us,” which showed that Obama is now becoming the focal point of immigration reform. As immigration reform has languished in the House chambers, immigration reform advocates are now calling on Obama to stop his harsh deportation policies.

Raleigh Immigration Sentiment

The protest in Raleigh was part of a nationwide effort to get Obama to stop his deportation policies that are tearing families apart. Sure, Republican members of Congress deserve a major part of the blame, but Obama’s hands are also far from clean. Obama is in trouble because attention has now turned from Republicans in the Capitol to the Oval Office in the White House.

A red stop sign read “stop deportations,” and it was clear that the focus was clearly on Obama’s deportation policies and not on immigration reform. American flags were waved, signs held, and events filmed. “Not one more,” read another sign in Spanish, and underneath an Obama political symbol encircling chained hands displayed the palpable frustrations that protestors are have with Obama’s policies.

Time for Drastic Deportation Policy Changes

Raleigh immigration attorneys often deal with immigrants who have suffered many abuses in the immigration system. Obama’s deportation policies have long been criticized, and even though the Deferred Action Program has provided some relief, more needs to be done. It is clear that immigration reform will not happen before the midterm elections, and this reality means that Obama really needs to work on reforming immigration issues under his jurisdiction.

Those interested in the plight of immigrants know best that reform needs to happen. President Obama has waited too long behind the shadow of the do-nothing Congress. He is finally being drug out of the shadows into the light where the role his policies have had on immigrants can be clearly seen. Here’s hoping that protests like those in Raleigh can help spur reform.MMARY: Protestors in Raleigh made it clear that Obama’s deportation policies are a problem. Read how they sent their message.
