Jaylen Loya, of Phoenix, Ariz., speaks to marchers of the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM) and its Keeping Families Together: Youth in Action campaign, as her sister Jayslet, left, and civil rights marchers Gwen Gamble, back right, and Deborah Smith, back far right, listen at the Lutheran Church of the Reformation before their march on the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013. The rally was held before the march to make a personal appeal to House GOP leadership, including Speaker of the House John Boehner, to reform immigration laws to provide citizenship for all 11 million aspiring Americans. The children met with civil rights veterans who participated in the Children's Crusade of 1963 in Birmingham, AL before the march at the Lutheran Church of the Reformation, in Washington, D.C, to share their collective stories at support the march.
