Dreamers protest outside Arizona AG's office

PHOENIX -- Some youth living in the country illegally and pushing for immigration reform burned their high school diplomas in front of the Arizona Attorney General's Office in Phoenix.

They're part of a group of immigrants known as ``Dreamers.'' That's in reference to the U.S. Dream Act bill that would grant permanent residency to students whose parents brought them to the U.S. illegally.

They protested Attorney General Tom Horne's decision to file a lawsuit that could possibly limit college opportunities for thousands of Dreamers.

The Dreamers say Horne's suit basically makes their high school diplomas worthless.

After burning diplomas Tuesday, the Dreamers donned aprons and began working at a taco truck positioned in front of Horne's office.

They say keeping them from attending a community college forces them to work minimum-wage jobs.
