"Two immigrants who were detained for more than two weeks after they walked into a Border Patrol office in Alabama and declared they were undocumented have been released. Isaac Barrera, 20, and Jonathan Perez, 24, were released Wednesday
and are scheduled to appear before an Immigration Court judge on Dec. 2. The men, who live in California, traveled to Alabama to risk arrest
in order to challenge the state’s controversial hard-line immigration
law and call attention to the need for immigration reform, they said. Perez, who came with his family from Colombia
when he was 3-years-old, said it was liberating to put himself in a
situation that undocumented people like himself always dread." - Fox News Latino / Associated Press, Nov. 25, 2011.
