Young immigrants to rally at NC community college

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — Illegal immigrants brought to the United
States as children plan to risk arrest and deportation at a rally
in Charlotte where they’ll protest laws that make it harder for
them to get an education.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported that the rally will be held
Tuesday at Central Piedmont Community College.

Rally organizer Domenic Powell says high school- and college-age
youths will publicly declare their immigration status in what he
referred to as a “coming out” rally, culminating with a march at
the college.

The students call themselves “dreamers” after legislation in
Congress known as the DREAM Act, which would give a pathway to
legal status to young, educated illegal immigrants without criminal
records.
