KGUN: Illegal immigrant who takes part in sit-in at Senator McCain's office speaks out Reported By: Steve Nunez

TUCSON, AZ (KGUN-TV) - Today a number of people from around the country, most illegal immigrants, converged in what could be a costly demonstration for the DREAM Act. The "Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors" is a bipartisan piece of legislation sponsored by Republican Senator Orin Hatch of Utah and Democratic Senator Richard Durbin of Illinois.

The DREAM Act aims to give people brought here illegally at a young age a conditional path to citizenship. It would give them 6 years to complete either a college degree or two years of military service. It is legislation now opposed by Arizona Senator's Jon Kyl and John McCain.

The five activists, four who are illegal immigrants, took a stand by sitting down inside McCain's Tucson office. Just before 6p.m. One of the illegal immigrants, Tania Unzueta, voluntarily walked out to speak for all who share her same story. .
