U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) is greeted by an immigration reform activist in front of the U.S. Capitol October 23, 2013 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. A group of undocumented immigrants and their supporters traveled for more than 40 hours to the nations capital on a bus from Arizona to try to meet with Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) to urge a vote on a comprehensive immigration reform bill. The group did not get to meet with the Speaker, but instead spent the last two days seeking support in hallways from House members during votes, and saying prayers in front of the U.S. Capitol, and outside Boehners office at the Longworth Building.
