Eight "Dreamers" wearing their school graduation caps and gowns to show their desire to finish school in the U.S., march with linked arms to the U.S. port of entry where they planned to request humanitarian parole, in Nogales, Mexico, Monday, July 22, 2013. U.S. border officials later detained the group who asked to be allowed to re-enter the United States from Mexico on humanitarian grounds in a protest against the country’s immigration policies.

The nine activists taken into custody two weeks ago after crossing into the U-S from Mexico were freed Wednesday afternoon in Tucson. The Fronteras Desk's Michel Marizco was there and reports that they may be free for now but their legal troubles have just begun.
