TUCSON - Leaders from the Derechos Humanos Coalition took to the streets of Downtown Tucson to protest the raids.
Demonstrators held banners, demanding answers from the Obama Administration as to why these raids were allowed.
Protesters said they are disappointed in President Obama for allowing this to happen in their communities. Claiming it causes fear and panic.
"This is not acceptable and we are taking clear note on what is being done against our communities when its supposed to be done for change," said Rachel Wilson.
Organizers said there has to be another alternative to improve immigration reform.
"We were told that there would be change coming. We were told there would be a comprehensive immigration reform and today we have actions like this," said Kat Rodriguez of Derechos Humanos.
