Latino USA dedicates the entire hour to their story and discussing their legacy.

Two years ago, a group of young undocumented activists staged one of, if not the, riskiest protests in the history of the immigration rights movement. The Dream 9 was a group of people who had grown up in the U.S., had gone back to Mexico and now wanted to return to what they thought of as "home." Some of them had even left the U.S. just to participate in the action. Their efforts landed all of them in detention.
