May 4, 2009 (CHICAGO) --Local Hispanic leaders are issuing a call to President Obama to remember a promise he made regarding keeping families together. Members of the Historic United Families National Campaign gathered Monday morning at McCormick Place. That's where 2,000 families plan to gather this Saturday during Mother's Day weekend. They are demanding a stop to separating families and for immediate comprehensive immigration reform.
Members say the president promised that he would make it unacceptable to separate a mother from her child in the US.
