The legendary group Los Tigres del Norte and other Latino stars are headlining a concert in Washington today and urging pro-immigration reform supporters from all over the nation to descend on the U.S. Capitol with one message to legislators: Get Immigration Reform Done Now. At the protest, more than 200 social leaders are planning to be arrested in acts of civil disobedience. This is a live report on this last-minute effort to break the inaction on immigration reform.
