RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – As the Supreme Court heard arguments about President Barack Obama’s immigration policy on Monday, immigrant activists gathered outside the Executive Mansion in Raleigh.

They came to show support for the president’s immigration plan. They say too many undocumented immigrants are living in the shadows, in constant fear of deportation.

“Kids are going to be all by themselves and I don’t want that to happen to my family,” said Karla Martinez. “To my mom and my dad.”

But the North Carolina Republican Party fired back with a shot at Attorney General Roy Cooper, who is running against McCrory.

“While Governor McCrory’s challenge to President Obama’s executive amnesty has reached the highest court in the land, our state’s attorney general, Roy Cooper, has been AWOL,” said Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of the state GOP.
