AP Cutline: “Immigration reform advocates march to the Federal Courthouse in downtown Denver on Tuesday, June 15, 2010. The group, which had more than 100 protesters, marched from the Colorado state Capitol to the federal courts to call for changes in the nation’s immigration laws.”
…and 14 of them — one in 7 — was arrested.
Tea Partiers can convene in groups of 100,000 and not get arrested.
The lefties in SEIU purple can’t assemble 100 people peacefully without 14 of them getting arrested.
And yet the press gives the Tea Party crowd the angry-and-violent label.
From the Associated Press:
DENVER (AP) — Authorities have arrested 14 immigration reform advocates for blocking a road in front of a federal courthouse as a group of about 100 protesters marched in downtown Denver.
The group marched from the Colorado state capitol to the federal courts on Tuesday to call for changes in the country’s immigration laws.
The 14 were arrested after kneeling down and refusing to get out of the road. Officers put blue plastic handcuffs on them, ticketed them for the misdemeanor charge of blocking a roadway and took them to jail.
Advocates have become more vocal after Arizona passed a law requiring police to question people about their immigration status while enforcing other laws if there’s reason to suspect someone is in the country illegally.
