Lafayette Street between Shelby and Washington Boulevard in downtown Detroit was flooded with people supporting several Iraqi-American immigrants facing possible deportation.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, arrested these immigrants in metro-Detroit more than a week ago.
Most have criminal records, but have already served time or paid their fines.
Carrie Heichle is the wife of one of the men arrested during the ICE sweeps.
She says her two sons are having a hard time without their dad.
