NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico
Nearly three dozen young immigrants raised in the United States are donning caps and gowns in preparation for their attempted return to the U.S. at a bridge on the Texas-Mexico border.
The 32 trying to cross at the port of entry in Laredo, Texas, Monday hope to follow in the footsteps of the so-called Dream Nine who were released pending asylum hearings in Arizona in August after spending two weeks in detention.
The group spent a week of preparatory meetings and bonding at a migrant shelter here with a view of Texas.
