Watch what happens when police and protesters talk ahead of time before arrests happen. Ten protesters were arrested Monday as they blocked Burnsville Parkway in front of U.S. Representative John Kline’s office while about 100 supporters watched their act of civil disobedience. Organized by La Asamblea de Derechos Civiles (Assembly of Civil Rights), a statewide, faith-based non-profit organization, the action was planned in an effort to pressure the Republican Congressman to support immigration reform, as well as to call on House Speaker John Boehner to bring HR-15, the bill that has already passed in the Senate and includes a path to citizenship, to the House Floor.
About a dozen people entering the building where Kline has his office, and requesting to speak with him. Staff in the office said Kline was unavailable, but told the group they could leave their names and the Congressman would respond to them. The protest was part of a larger day of civil disobedience in cities around the country. Distributed by OneLoad.com
