Local rally calling for an end to deportation of refugee children

By Rikki Cheese. CREATED Jul 31, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Dozens of locals marched in front of the federal building Thursday night, demanding an end to the deportation of children crossing U.S. borders.

They said it's a humanitarian crisis the U.S. has mishandled.

Pastor Joel Menchaca said, "They're coming here, because, maybe we failed in supporting these countries that are third world countries. They need help to control drugs to control crime to control gangs. And maybe we should have sent help over there, instead of waiting for the kids to come here."

The rally was also intended to raise money and supplies for the refugees.
