Rally for Citizenship in Washington DC

Martin Martinez, center, and his wife, Blanca Martinez, third from left, gather for a photo outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices during an immigration vigil, Wednesday, April 10, 2013, in Las Vegas. During the process in which Blanca Martinez, a U.S. citizen, applied for a petition for her husband to obtain a Green Card, Martin was detained by ICE officials for nearly two weeks and nearly deported back to El Salvador before being released. The vigil was held to honor all who have been detained or deported by ICE.
