Frustrated by the lack of progress in Congress on immigration reform, protestors have resorted to drastic new tactics to prevent deportations.
On Tuesday, activists chained themselves in front of a detention facility in Eloy, Arizona, and said they are calling on President Obama to stop deportations and the criminalization of immigrants, according to NBC Latino.
According to #Not1More Deportation Campaign, the intent is to shut down the district Immigration and Customs Enforcement office and urge the President to become more than a bystander in the immigration debate.
Protestors are beginning to balance blame between Republican Congressman and the President, whose administration has deported 400,000 immigrants annually.
One of the attendees, 16-year-old Sandy Estrada, said in a statement that she was demonstrating on behalf of her brother, who has been detained in Eloy for nearly a year.
