The grandmothers of six-year-old Elian Gonzales came to Washington today to ask Attorney General Janet Reno to allow their grandson to come home. Although the I-N-S has ruled that the six-year-old should be reunited with his father in Cuba, Elian's relatives in Florida have asked for an asylum hearing, and the Attorney General has decided to let the matter play out in court. Next week, members of Congress plan to introduce legislation to grant Elian citizenship. NPR's Mary Ann Akers has the latest.
