    Supporters gathered at New Britain City Hall Wednesday to rally for a New Britain mother and father facing deportation to Pakistan later this month.

    Zahida Altaf and Malik Rehman have lived in the US for nearly 20 years and have a 5-year-old daughter.

    “I keep trying to hold myself because of my daughter. I want she have a better future here. So that's why I keep trying to hold myself,” Altaf said.

    NBC Connecticut reached out to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for details on the couple’s case, but has yet to hear back.
