The demonstration and the civil disobedience that unfolded during it was documented by the DREAMers themselves via social media, particularly UWD's UStream account, where viewers were able to watch the action live as it unfolded.

(Those broadcasts are archived on UStream.tv, and are riveting.)

Wednesday afternoon, four DREAMers chained themselves to an entryway/exit. Authorities cut the chains and arrested them for obstructing an entrance to a federal building. About an hour later, according to ADAC's Facebook timeline, they were set free.

ADAC spokeswoman Jhannyn Rivera explained that the demonstration involved two DREAMers, one undocumented mom, and one citizen.
