A delegation of Tohono O'odham Nation members are making their way to Washington, DC, this week in hopes of drawing attention to border woes experience by the Arizona tribe.

The tribe has historically occupied an area that is now divided by the US-Mexico border. The tribe is seeking U.S. citizenship for all members in order to ease problems encountered at the border.
