CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) -- Illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children plan to risk arrest and deportation at a rally in Charlotte where they'll protest laws that make it harder for them to get an education. The Winston-Salem Journal reported that the rally will be held Tuesday at Central Piedmont Community College. Rally organizer Domenic Powell says high school- and college-age youths will publicly declare their immigration status in what he referred to as a "coming out" rally, culminating with a march at the college. The students call themselves "dreamers" after legislation in Congress known as the DREAM Act, which would give a pathway to legal status to young, educated illegal immigrants without criminal records.
