7 arrested at downtown L.A. pro-immigration protest
Police made at least seven arrests Wednesday during a protest outside the Ronald Reagan Federal Building, authorities said.
The arrests stemmed from a pro-immigration protest involving more than 50 demonstrators. Acts of civil disobedience included blocking the driveway to the federal building to prevent buses that were deporting illegal immigrants from leaving the facility, said Sgt. Mitzi Fierro, an LAPD spokeswoman.
Three people were arrested during the demonstration for refusing to disperse after the LAPD declared an unlawful assembly. Four others were booked on unspecified federal charges.
