Immigration activists rallied in scores of cities across the country on Saturday in a day of action calling for President Obama to put an end to deportations.

Almost 2 million people have been deported under Obama's admnistration, leading some to dub him the "deporter-in-chief."

"We've seen many of our families torn apart and his words are not enough anymore. We need to see actions," said Nayley Perez-Huerta, who organized Raleigh's march, and urged the president to take executive action on immigration reform.
