Phoenix, Arizona. April 25, 2012 - Daniela Cruz, one of the undocumented students arrested on March 20, 2012, takes part of a protest outside the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building near downtown Phoenix. About 500 people protested the controversial SB 1070 immigration law on the same day U.S. Supreme Court justices heard legal arguments on the Arizona vs. United States case. At the end of the march, six activists blocked Central Avenue by sitting in the middle of the street. They all were arrested by the Phoenix Police Department and taken to the Fourth Avenue County Jail. Daniela Cruz has become an outspoken activist to advocate for passage of the DREAM Act which would allow her and about 1 million individual to obtain a path for legalization.
