Street performers draw attention to the plight of those affected by immigration reform.

Young immigrants took to the streets of Charlotte, North Carolina Wednesday, acting out real life scenarios in a technique called "Theater of the Oppressed". They're hoping it makes people stop and think about the real people behind Immigration Reform.

"There's always this constant fear, ok what's going to happen now or if I do this or even if I approach a cop," said Ramon Garibaldo.
The group United 4 The Dream, instead of standing on a corner protesting, are hoping to engage the public on immigration by acting out four real life scenarios with the help of the Latin American Coalition.
Ramon says if they can change even one opinion on immigration reform, it's worth it.
"I want people to walk in the streets and see that immigration is not just this isolated issue I see on the news I'm part of this," said Garibaldo.
