Dreamer's arrested outside of Boehner's Office
Eleven million dreams will not be stopped. Today, more than 200 DREAMers took to the halls of the U.S. Capitol office buildings to protest House Speaker John Boehner's refusal to hold a vote on citizenship for the nation's 11 million aspiring Americans.
Earlier today a group of DREAMers crossed the Key Bridge from Arlington, Va., and marched to the Capitol.
While the hundreds of DREAMers filled the hallways outside Boehner's and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's (R-Va.) offices, 11 people took arrest for refusing to leave Cantor's office. A group hummed "Amazing Grace" outside the Republican leader Boehner's office.
