They gathered in Greensboro Thursday to urge Sens. Richard Burr and Thom Tillis to support a clean Dream Act.

Since President Trump signaled the end of the deferred action for childhood arrivals program in the fall, immigrants brought to the U.S. as children are facing deportation.

In September, the President gave Congress until March 5, 2018 to pass legislation replacing the DACA program before it ends.

The DACA program covers about 800,000 people.
