Dozens of angry voters are demanding answers on the future of healthcare and immigration in San Diego County. 

Community members and faith leaders organized what they called an "emergency vigil" outside Representative Darrell Issa's home on Thursday. The rally came just two days after the congressman answered voters' questions outside his office. Some voters say that still wasn't enough. 

Attendees of the vigil want to denounce what they're calling republican attacks on healthcare and immigrants in San Diego. Reverend Beth Johnson helped facilitate the event. She says the vigil was about representing voices from a variety of people. 

"Immigrants, the elderly, people who will be affected by the expansion, the repeal of the medical expansion, drug prices that will go up. It isn't just an immigration issue, we're talking about the ACA here, the affordable care act and the impact its gonna have on his constituents."

Other immigrant advocate groups told 10 News that some of their clients haven't been showing up for their appointments because they're too afraid to leave home. Some parents are even preparing their kids for the chance that mom and dad will suddenly vanish.
