“We are here to ask [the president] for a moratorium on the deportation to keep our families together,” said the Rev. Jose Landaverde, pastor Our Lady of Guadalupe Anglican Mission in Chicago. Jessica Guerrero recently got her deferred action. She is calling for other immigrant students to join the march. “We want everybody to be equal as well as our parents,” Guerrero said. Landaverde says the march is set for 11 a.m. on Inauguration Day, and they will congregate at the federal building at noon.
