The undocumented youths usually compete for the rights of youths who are also seeking legal employment in the United States primarily the Arizona. The students were also united to fight against the high tuition fees that were being charged to these immigrants.

They also used to fund an organization called ACLU of Arizona. It was established in the year 1959 and has been a leader against injustices that target the minorities across all the Arizona states.
