President is called to assert his power and stop the deportations. In a document of 30 pages , the National Day Laborer Organizing Network ( NDLON ), with the support of the largest trade union in the United States, the AFL -CIO , on Tuesday introduced a series of legal arguments asking President Barack Obama to suspend deportations of undocumented immigrants. During the press conference in Washington, NDLON argued that the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the federal government has " a reasonable time" to respond to the request to suspend the deportations, but there is not a maximum . During FY 2013 the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement ( ICE) deported undocumented 368.644 and 40% of them had no criminal record . During the first administration of President Obama (2009-2012) DHS deported an average of 400,000 , beating four successive records. Organizations defending the rights of immigrants and immigration reform clamoring said six to seven of 10 DHS deported had no criminal record that put at risk the security of the country . "It's a tragedy that more than 1,000 families are separated workers every day due to deportations ," said at the time the president of the Commission on Immigration Reform from the AFL -CIO , Maria Elena Durazo . The labor movement along with entrepreneurs, farmers , religious , Chamber of Commerce and the high-tech sector ask Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform and the government stop the deportations. On Monday, farmers and evangelical national coalition launched campaigns to pressure the House of Representatives in favor of reform. Last year, the AFL -CIO and pro - immigrant groups, argue that Obama should use his executive authority to expand the decision of 2012 that ended the deportations of dreamers ( DACA ) , which favors nearly 1.7 million young undocumented.
