Thousands of Dreamers flock to Washington to push Congress to act on immigration: Hundreds of thousands of Dreamers are at risk of losing their protected immigration status.
Eyeing this month as the last, best chance for a deal to ensure that nearly 700,000 Dreamers be granted reprieve from deportation, thousands of protesters have descended on the US Capitol to demand action on the contentious issue.
Waving signs of all shapes, sizes, and colours, demonstrators from all over the country rallied near the Senate chambers Wednesday to urge Congress to see their humanity.
