UCLA Group to Join Undocumented Youth in Rally Against Mitt Romney

A multi-state series of rallies begins Monday, when Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is set to speak in Los Angeles.

UCLA students are set to join young illegal immigrants in a push to confront Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on his immigration positions.

The school's IDEAS (Improving Dreams, Equality, Access and Success) group, in addition to various youth-led immigrant organizations across the country, are part of a four-state tour scheduled to begin Monday, according to a press release. 

Members of these groups will kick off a series of rallies against Romney on Monday, when he'll be in downtown Los Angeles to address the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's 33rd annual national convention.

Youth groups in Salt Lake City, Dallas, and Miami are also set to rally against Romney.

In August, IDEAS organized a deferred action workshop for young illegal immigrants.
