Last night, 19 protesters were arrested during a sit-in on Seventh Street for immigration rights. Organized by the SF Bay Area Coalition for Immigration Reform, the majority of those arrested were clergymen.
Last night's rally "brought more than 100 people outside the San Francisco Federal Building at 90 7th St. to call on Congress to pass an immigration reform bill," notes KTVU. This prefaced a massive Arizona immigration protest underway today, wherein hundreds of Californians rolled into Arizona this morning "to protest the state's new immigration law, a day after a federal judge put its key measures on hold."
Rallies will be held in the Bary Area, starting at 3 p.m. at the Fruitvale BART station in Oakland, and then later at 5:30 p.m. at the 24th and Mission BART station in San Francisco.
