Charlotte Immigrant Community Demands Support From City Officials

CHARLOTTE, NC — Members of the immigrant community in Charlotte gathered at the Government Center Wednesday morning demanding support from the city’s elected officials.

The group claims that President Trump’s recent executive orders on immigration are hurting immigrant families. They are now calling for Mayor Jennifer Roberts and city council members to speak out against the orders.

Advocates with the group say a march is being planned for May that is scheduled to begin at Marshall Park.
