Seven illegal immigrants chained themselves to the White House  fence Wednesday to demand President Obama halt all deportations, saying he has a moral obligation to keep families together.
“Stop deportations — not one more,” onlookers chanted as police moved in to remove the activists, who aired a live web videocast of their arrest.
A day earlier, Mr. Obama had rejected their calls, telling Telemundo, a Spanish-language network, that halting more deportations is “not an option.”
Immigrant-rights activists said 1,200 immigrants are deported every day. The seven who chained themselves to the White House  fence along Pennsylvania Avenue include three from Arizona, two from Atlanta, one from New Orleans and one from New York.
