Tucson Activists Attempt Deportation Bus Blockade

"U.S. Marshals and security officers were trying to remove immigration activists who blocked the main exit of Tucson's federal courthouse this morning to keep a bus that returns deported individuals from leaving.  About two dozen demonstrators were gathered on the east side of the courthouse about eight this morning.  Six of them formed a human chain, blocking the driveway to the courthouse at the corner of West Congress Street and South Granada Avenue." - Perla Trevizo, Arizona Daily Star, Oct. 11, 2013.
