Another three activists belonging to the Dream 30 group were deported over the weekend, La Opinión reported Monday.

With the return of Edgar Torres, Karen Hernandez and César Ortiz to Mexico, the total number Dream 30 activists deported comes to five, with another four remaining in detention in El Paso. The rest have been allowed to remain the United States provisionally, either a broad form of discretionary parole or to pursue asylum cases.

Some 30 people who had lived part of their lives as undocumented immigrants in the United States gathered in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, in September and crossed through the legal port of entry as a unique form of protest against the Obama administration’s record-setting pace of deportations. Dubbing themselves the “Dream 30,” the group was joined by four more participants along the way.
