"Dreams Across America"  is the latest stunt from supporters of a massive illegal alien amnesty, consisting of about 100 people taking a train Washington DC to lobby for "reform". You can read the MSM's take here.
They have at least one minor, indirect link to the Mexican government: when they arrive in DC they "will join hundreds of immigrant children and their families at an event organized by the Fair Immigration Reform Movement" . One of the latter's member groups is the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, headed by the Mexico-linked Juan Salgado.
However, in a deft move, it appears that all of those on the train are either native-born or naturalized citizens rather than illegal aliens as was the case with 2003's "Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride". That is, needless to say, simply a ploy: what they support involves giving illegal aliens amnesty; any additional rights for legal immigrants are a minor part of what they want.
In addition to the fun vacation, they're also sharing their heart-warming stories in a series of web videos. There certainly aren't enough heart-warming stories about struggling immigrants in the MSM, right?
And, in another move indicating that they continue to learn how to hide what they really want, not all the videos are from Hispanics. One of the videos even features "Rusty Hicks tell[ing] the story of his migration from Texas to Los Angeles" . Such internal migration is hardly any different from someone sneaking across the border and then buying fake documentation to work here illegally, right?
And, in an ironic twist, one of the participants appears to be a beneficiary of the 1986 amnesty.
One of the movers behind the current group is the Catholic Church including the "Pedophile Protector" himself, Cardinal Roger Mahoney. Another is sol-california.com, which appears to be a pan-union effort with board members from the AFL-CIO (Maria Elena Durazo), SEIU Local 1877 (Mike Garcia), President, SEIU United Healthcare Workers - West (Sal Roselli), and UNTIE HERE State Political Director Jack Gribbon. Contact persons for SOL are Javier Gonzalez and Elda Martinez.
Another person involved is HuffPost contributor and former Howard Dean CA chair Rick Jacobs; he heads the "Courage Campaign" . The CC has some interesting indirect links to George Soros ; whether they have direct links isn't known. For some reason the CC's Youtube icon  is of Fabian Nunez. Their most-watched video only has about 1300 views (thanks largely to Crooks and Liars): youtube.com/watch?v=qs63p3_IdNs . It features a landscaper (Cathy Gurney) whining about not being able to find labor. While I don't endorse the words used in the following comment left on that video, the underlying spirit is accurate:
this bitch is a liar....she cant get legal employees because she wont offer a living wage...she is the epitomy of the evil employer....booohooohooo...i cant find legal employees....hey cathy, offer 20 bux an hour and legal employees will come out of the woodwork
 Their "partners" include: MoveOn.org, Democracy For America (both Soros linked), New Progressive Coalition, Powerpac.org, CalPIRG, California Nurses Association, Common Cause, Brave New Films and Progressive Majority.
