Immigration reform advocates march for comprehensive immigration reform on October 5, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. Thousands of people took part the National Day of Dignity and Respect in more than 150 events nationwide.

Last week, college student Dean Santos stood with dozens of other protesters in San Francisco as they surrounded a federal bus believed to be carrying immigrant detainees bound for deportation. Their goal: To keep the bus from leaving.

It was the most recent in a series of increasingly bold — and risky – protests, because some of the protesters themselves face possible deportation.

KPCC's Leslie Berestein Rojas examines the more aggressive approach among young people who publicly declare their undocumented status, to protesters blocking a bus full of detainees.
