LIVE: undocumented students stage a sit in

 http://www.endourpain.com/about/

Watch 5 undocumented students stage a sit in at the Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) Prosecutor's office to demand that President Obama stop the deportation of undocumented youth and grant them administrative relief.
END Our Pain is United We Dream's national campaign to prevent the deportations of young people, thereby allowing immigrant youth to continue their lives in the United States, pursue higher education and achieve their dreams.

A LIVE broadcast is going on now Wednesday noon

We find ourselves at a critical time. The absence of strong and clear policy directives continue to place our youth and families at risk of being deported. Every day, we witness the ramifications of poor leadership and idle promises; Washington, but more specifically, our President, has authorized programs that threaten peace and stability in our homes. Though examples abound, among the most destructive is the Secure Communities program, which deputizes local law enforcement agents to enforce federal immigration law. It is because of the urgency of our time that we write to you in the hopes that you will speak with us about an issue of utmost importance to our communities.
