The National People's Action group, and the National Domestic Workers Alliance organized a rally Monday at the White House to demand President Obama immediately halt deportations and prioritize family unity.

Since President Obama has been in office, more than two million foreign nationals have been deported, putting him on track to deport more immigrants than any other president. Activists are calling for Congress to change immigration laws. However, House Republicans stalled last year's Senate immigration bill.

Activists say they will continue to fight for their families until an executive order is signed, though they may be subject to arrest due to civil disobedience.
