RALEIGH, N.C. -- Hispanics across North Carolina rallied Monday while Republicans at a Charlotte college sold bricks symbolizing the wall they say is needed to keep illegal immigrants out of the United States.

College Republicans at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte staged a rally of their own Monday, demanding tougher enforcement of existing immigration laws and objecting to talk of amnesty for immigrants now in the country illegally. The GOP group sold bricks symbolic of a wall it said was needed to secure U.S. borders.

"We hope to raise public awareness about the issue," group chairman Erin Karriker said. "A lot of the feedback was very positive."

The group sold about 50 bricks at $5 each in four hours. The money will pay to ship the bricks, each bearing a note on the immigration issue, to U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Dole and Richard Burr, R-N.C.; Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn.; and other Senate leaders, Karriker said.
