Local immigration activists plan march on City Hall

February 22, 2011

SAN ANTONIO -- Ex-employees of the Lone Star Bakery along with community activists are planning to march on City Hall.

The business laid off 300 of workers suspected of being in the country illegally.

In response, the Cesar Chavez Legacy and Educational Foundation says it plans to hold a demonstration, calling on President Obama to stop deportations of illegal immigrants until reform is passed.

Organizers say more than 1,200 working families are deported every day.
