Dozens of so-called "Dreamers" rallied at a border crossing in Laredo, Texas on Monday. They grew up in America, but were deported because of their illegal status.

The "Dreamers" wore graduation caps and gowns to signify their U.S. upbringing.

They asked for humanitarian entrance into the country.

There was also a crowd of supporters on the U.S. side of the border.

Undocumented Protester, "Families need to be together, so they're coming back to reunite with their families. They have parents, brothers, sisters that are here, that want them home, so it's, and I'm also undocumented as well, so it hits home for me."

The Dreamers are being processed by Custom agents, officials say that could take some time.
