According to nytimes.com:  “Lacing up new pairs of walking shoes with a flourish, four immigrant students set out on foot from downtown Miami on Friday, starting a four-month walk to Washington to protest what they called the Obama administration’s lack of action on legislation granting legal status to illegal immigrants.”

In December, a comprehensive immigration reform bill was introduced in the House.  Many expect this hot-button issue to take center-stage in the next few weeks.  Given high national unemployment and the 2010 mid-term elections, passage seems like a long-shot at this point.  However, health care reform seemed impossible just a couple of months ago so we will have to see how this plays out.
