DREAMers Besiege ICE, Six Arrested for Acts of Civil Disobedience

To alter a line from the great Gil Scott-Heron, the revolution will be UStreamed.

In a demonstration Wednesday at the Phoenix Field Office for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, DREAMers, undocumented moms, and U.S. citizens laid siege to the facility, in one instance blocking a bus filled with ICE detainees.

Six protesters, all members of the Arizona DREAM Act Coalition and the national umbrella group United We DREAM, were taken into custody by Federal Protective Services, the security force that guards federal government properties.

They were cited for misdemeanors and released shortly thereafter.
