Demonstrators demand immigration changes


They're upset because reforms promised by President Obama have not yet happened.

They want "ICE," the "Immigration and Customs Enforcement" agency, to target "employers who hire undocumented workers" and "illegals who commit crimes," instead of going after people just trying to make a living.

"We have seen, most recently, hundreds and thousands of ICE audits that are destroying the lives of employees and their families," community activist Richard Hobes said.

ICE countered with a statement saying criminal deportations increased by 19 percent in the last fiscal year and by 40 percent so far this year.
