A group of young undocumented immigrants has organized a walk from San Francisco to Washington, D.C., to gather support for the Dream Act.

The three marchers want congress to pass the Dream Act legislation so illegal immigrants who go to college or join the military have a better chance at gaining legal status.

They hope to wind up in Washington by late October. Congress has voted against different versions of the Dream Act several times.
