      Immigrant rights backers head to D.C.
      Del. activists to join thousands more as Congress returns to work

      They awakened America in spring, galvanizing millions in spontaneous street rallies, chanting, clapping and raising their voice for immigration reforms.
       
      Now, after months of relative quiet, immigrants and immigrants’ rights advocates are back, and on Thursday, hundreds of Delawareans are expected to join a rally at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to greet a returning Congress.
       
      Their demands: legalization of the country’s estimated 12 million illegal immigrants and a moratorium on deportation.
       
      “We want the immigration issues to come back to the table,” said Pastor Rene Knight, of the Iglesia Metodista Unida Betel in Georgetown.
       
      Before Congress adjourned for the summer, the debate reached a deadlock because of conflicting proposals from the House and the Senate. The Senate’s plan offers a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants who have been in the U.S at least five years, while the House version explores making it a felony to be inside the country illegally.
       
      The rally, organized by the National Capital Immigration Coalition – an immigration reform advocacy group – expects more than a million marchers from all over the East Coast.
       
      In Delaware, organizers such as Knight braved this weekend’s incessant rain to spread the word about the protest – distributing fliers at restaurants, homes and bodegas and appearing on radio shows.
       
      “We have three buses available right now,” Knight said. “By Tuesday, we should have a better idea about how many people are going.”
       
      At noon Thursday, Knight’s group will huddle in front of Grace United Methodist Church in Georgetown before heading to Washington, D.C., for the 4 p.m. event.
       
      In Wilmington, Voices Without Borders Inc. is leading the organization efforts. The group could not be reached for comment Saturday.
       
      Immigration experts don’t anticipate Congress will act on reform legislation during an election year, but activists say they aren’t ready to accept defeat.
       
      “We have to push,” Knight said. “I feel it’s an important issue, especially in an election year.”

      SÁSABE, Mexico -- Somewhere north of this Mexican cattle outpost, U.S. National Guard troops man 24-hour observation posts and better-equipped U.S. Border Patrol agents roam the desert, searching for illegal immigrants.
       
      Yet even as the Bush administration points to a drop in apprehensions at the border as proof that the new security measures are working, thousands of Mexicans and Central Americans still gather daily in border towns like this, willing to risk anything for a slot in the U.S. labor market.
