Immigrant rights activists have succeeded in putting stalled immigration reform back on the agenda, but they're not done yet
"We are here to ask President Obama what his legacy will be," Rosi Carrasco said as she climbed down from the "UndocuBus", colorfully painted with butterflies, that the activists traveled in from Arizona.
"What we want to say to President Obama is, on which side of the history is he going to be? Is he going to be remembered as the president that has been deporting the most people in US history, or he is going to be on the side of immigrants?"
Rosi's husband, Martin Unzueta, said:
"I am undocumented. I've been living here for 18 years. I pay taxes, and I'm paying more taxes than Citibank."
