With Immigration Tabled Until November, Some Cannot Wait, Activists Say

President Barack Obama won't address deportation policy until after the midterm elections, but Ana Belia and Luis Miguel, teens from Guatemala, may or may not still be here when that discussion resumes. Read about their journey, and what removal from the United States will cost them, here:

From the article: 
"They called it “the beast”, and they mounted it with no saddle or reins. Riding on the top of a speeding train was only one leg of the journey that 15 year old Ana Belia and her brother Luis Miguel took from their native Guatemala and the domestic abuse they suffered at the hands of their father to a corner on Grand Avenue and Ferry Street in New Haven, where a Friday evening rally of immigrant rights activists from the group Unidad Latina en Accion, (ULA) are fighting to make sure that they-and others with a similar story-are not sent back."
