This photograph is of Immigrants and the Arizona Dream Act Coalition staff as they wait to hear from an attorney that could potentially help start a federal program to keep young undocumented immigrants from being deported. According to the¬†Al Jazeera¬†article “‘I’m American too’: Undocumented Students Wait for Obama Action”, there are about 1.5 million undocumented students living in the United States.
