Today, the Spanish-language press highlighted a protest in Georgia by members of the Ku Klux Klan against the walkers of the “Trail of Dreams” who advocate for the DREAM Act.  The four advocates calling for legalization and access to education for undocumented students began their walk from Miami and plan to continue to Washington D.C.

During a meeting at the White House about the developments to combat child poverty in Latin America, Pop singer Shakira and the President discussed immigration reform. 

Print newspapers, online news agencies, and Television, published articles about the march that will take place on Sunday, March 21 in favor of immigration reform in Washington D.C.
