Nine activists were detained in Nogales, Arizona, last month while crossing the border from Mexico, calling attention to U.S. deportation policies. Known as the “Dream 9,” the activists were arrested and locked at the Eloy detention center, where some were placed in solitary confinement after protesting conditions. After weeks of detention, the ‘Dream 9’ won the right to seek asylum in the U.S. and were freed. How will their actions impact other asylum cases, immigration reform and deportation practices?
