'No Papers, No Fear' Caravan Makes Stop In Nashville
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The No Papers, No Fear Caravan was in Nashville Thursday night to raise awareness for the plight of illegal immigrants.
The rally is just one stop on their cross country "Ride for Justice", which started in Arizona. It will arrive in Charlotte, North Carolina on September 3 to stage events at the Democratic National Convention.
The group is also showing their support for the President's executive order that allowed temporary legal status for some undocumented immigrants.
"Right now I am the only one who takes care of my family and it breaks my heart to know that even though I may get the work permit or I may get an opportunity to move forward in my life - it makes me sad to know that my parents are still at risk of being deported," Luis Escoto said.
"Deferred Action," as it's called, only applies to undocumented immigrants 30 and under, who were brought to this country as children.
