USA Today reports that hundreds of undocumented immigrants and supporters stood just outside the Phoenix Offices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to protest the high number of deportations that have occurred during Obama’s administration. In 2012, there were more than 400,000 deportations—the most ever recorded in a single year.


Deportation can take both emotional and financial tolls on families. Under current U.S. immigration laws, different members of the same family often are treated differently.

This causes families to split up. Heart wrenching cases like these are principal reasons why there was a protest in Phoenix this week.

Immigration Attorneys Help Fight Deportation

There are many reasons why ICE initiates removal proceedings: criminal behaviors, unlawful statuses and expired visas. Good immigration attorneys can help you apply for a cancellation of removal or help you qualify for a waiver of removability.

More Deportations Expected As Immigration Law Reform Remains Stalled

Protests like the one in Phoenix have been more common in the past year not only because the number of deportations continues to rise but also because there seems to be no end in sight. Supporters of immigration reform are upset that lawmakers are postponing debates on U.S. immigration laws.

In Phoenix, ICE suspended its deportation activities rather than face the crowd. The protestors were prepared to physically block buses carrying detainees as they were transported from the facility. Some believe that ICE evaded confronting the protestors to avoid drawing more attention to the cause.

The protest was not entirely composed of local supporters. Approximately 200 reform supporters from all across the country travelled to the protest in an attempt to boost the event’s visibility. Earlier in the week, six people tried to block detention buses by chaining themselves together.
