Skip to comments.Dreamers activists will attempt to cross back into US from Mexico

At 1pm on Monday, Rocio Hernandez Perez and 29 other young people will walk in a convoy across the bridge over the Rio Bravo and head for the Nuevo Laredo border crossing between Mexico and the US.
Dressed uniformly in graduation caps and gowns in the style of American students, which most of them once were, they will present themselves to US border guards on the Texas side of the crossing and in effect beg to be arrested.
They expect to be handcuffed and removed into a side room in the Nuevo Laredo border post for processing. If all goes according to plan, they will then be taken into detention where they will be held in custody for what could be several weeks.
Monday's action at the Nuevo Laredo crossing is the latest in a burgeoning protest movement organized by Dreamers the largely Hispanic, undocumented immigrants who were brought to America when they were in their infancy. The mass presentation will be the largest such event yet, following last month's group infiltration of a detention centre in Arizona by nine young activists calling themselves the "Dream Nine".
All 30 of the Laredo activists have spent most of their lives in the US, speak fluent English, and feel themselves to be fully American. Yet all of them have been forced to live outside the country, five because they were deported from the US and the remainder because they were made to feel so uncomfortable and frustrated by growing hostility in their home states that they did what Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, suggested and "self-deported".
Now they have had enough and want to come home. "Our hearts belong to the US," said Perez, 23, who lived in North Carolina since she was moved there by her parents

Ah the shame of being ridiculed. Nice how they laugh at us.
Do to them what they do to illegal invaders in THEIR country.
Yes. Arrest them all.
I prefer they be shot.
>> If Obama grants them all asylum,there will be no need for amnesty,they will all walk across the border, coming back to demand asylum and instant citizenship.<<
Anything to undermine American sovereignty and her power.
That's too extreme...for a first offense.Ten years the first time....shot the second time.
Why did 5 of them have to be removed from the US. The others are blowhard BS.
Set the dogs on them.
Put Holder’s people, the Black P. Party there in their normal ‘non-threatening’ attire and let the chips fall where they may. Unlike any lawful authority, they can actually get away with it. Just tell the P.Party that they are “White Hispanics”.
They want DREAM Act Illegal Alien Amnesty...while Americans struggle to get the funds to send their kids to college
Hispano Racists are sickening
Every Illegal Alien should be deported...not rewarded
Obama will send a Limo for them to ride across the border in style.
If the stay in Mexico they will have to learn 3 Rs before they graduate. If they were in high school when they got deported they probably had to go back to 4th grade in Mexico.
“Our hearts belong to the US.”
So get in line and legalize yourselves. I’m not understanding why this is never an option for these people.
When they cross the border, they should be detained. Then have a big, red “I” tattooed on their foreheads, and led immediately back across the border into Mexico.
With the “I” (Illegal) tattooed on their head, they should be easily spotted next time they try to cross the border. It is the “tag and release” program.
