A group of DREAM activists interrupted House Republicans’ first congressional hearing on immigration reform, chanting "undocumented and unafraid." They were there to protest Republican opposition to the DREAM Act, focusing on Republican Rep. Darrell Issa of California. The Republican hearing comes as party leaders are floating a potentially softer stance on immigration in a bid to woo Latino voters. In a speech this week, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor announced for the first time he would support a path to citizenship for undocumented youths.
