North Carolina students visit Congress to push for immigration overhaul

For high school senior Eddie Villanueva, walking the halls of Congress got easier this year. “This year I don’t have any butterflies,” said Villanueva, who’s from Charlotte, N.C. “Years ago I’d be nervous, but not today. Today, I’m ready to go to war.” Villanueva was one of nine students from United 4 the Dream, a Latin American youth advocacy group that travels to Washington every year to talk to lawmakers and lobbyists about immigration, who visited Capitol Hill on Thursday to reach out to Congress. This was his third trip.
