Supporters of the DREAM Act protest in Federal Plaza.

DREAM Act supporters rallied in New York Thursday to protest the scheduled deportation of Nadia Habib, a student at Stony Brook University.  From Bangladesh, Habib, 19, came here at 20 months. Her father is a permanent resident, but her mother also faced deportation. Immigration officials granted them a three-month reprieve. Many other undocumented students face deportation unless the U.S. Congress passes the DREAM Act.
