Mexico Border Dreamers-9

Wearing graduation-style cap and gown, U.S.-raised immigrant Alberto Peniche, 20, born in Mexico City and raised in Boston, waves and shouts as he and nearly three dozen youth prepare to present themselves to U.S. immigration officials as they cross the international bridge in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, Monday, Sept. 30, 2013. Peniche's sister Maria Ines was part of the original "Dream Nine," a smaller group that attempted to enter the U.S. at Nogales, Arizona, in July. (AP Photo/Christopher Sherman)
