A group of 9 undocumented young people, now known as the Dream 9, went to visit their families in Mexico and then returned to the US at a border patrol station in Nogales. It is reported their intention was to get into the notorious Elroy Detention Center in Arizona where earlier this year two people were found dead hanging in their cells, and where a US vet and father of eight went on hunger strike. The Dream 9 began a hunger strike soon after being detained at Elroy, six of them were placed in solitary confinement where as of the time this was written two of them remain. There are reports that 70 other women at Elroy detention center have joined the hunger strike.
