Immigration Activists Lock Themselves to Gates in Atlanta, Chicago

"Fifteen immigration activists were arrested Tuesday during a protest outside of a building that houses some offices of federal immigration authorities in Atlanta, federal authorities said.  The protest began just before 11 a.m. following a news conference in front of the building during which several speakers called on President Barack Obama to put an end to the deportation of people who are in the country illegally.  The Atlanta protest and another Tuesday near Chicago were the latest in a string of civil disobedience actions staged by activists to protest deportations." - Kate Brumback, AP, Nov. 19, 2013.
