PHOENIX - Activists are fighting the potential deportation of a Phoenix father recently released from detention because of federal budget cuts.
The Arizona Dream Act Coalition called on Congress to help fight the potential deportation of Moises Navarrete Torres during a rally Thursday outside the Phoenix office of Democratic U.S. Rep. Ed Pastor.
Navarrete says he was arrested for identity fraud in January after police searched his car and found a stranger's Social Security card. Navarrete says he found the card and wasn't using it.
Navarrete says he was released from federal detention in February when immigration officials released thousands of detainees because of budget cuts.
His 13-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son want him to stay in the United States.
President Barack Obama has called on Congress to pass immigration reform.
