Obama and Clinton Face Protests in North Carolina over ICE Raids

HeadlineJul 06, 2016

The FBI’s announcement came only hours before President Obama campaigned for Hillary Clinton during a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina.

President Barack Obama: “But I can tell you this: Hillary Clinton has been tested, and there has never been any man or woman more qualified for this office than Hillary Clinton.”

At the North Carolina rally, Clinton and Obama faced protests from teachers demanding the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency release local students who are currently detained and facing deportation. In a statement, the teachers said, ”ICE is denying our students their right to an education and preventing many from graduating.” North Carolina has been one of the states hardest hit by ICE raids this year.
