Activists are pushing for immigration reform in the US by urging the president, Barack Obama, to change the country's deportation strategy.
Almost 152,000 of 368,000 people deported in 2013 were what the US government calls non-criminal removals, although many entered illegally.
Nearly two million undocumented immigrants have been sent back to their countries under the Obama administration.
The president has ordered a review of the country's deportation policies, but it is not clear when that review will completed.
