    Protesters Arrested At Rally Against Jeff Sessions During His LA Visit

    U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions' trip to Los Angeles Tuesday has been met with protest as immigration advocates blast the Justice Department leader and the Trump administration for its family separation policy.

    Demonstrators gathered at the Federal Courthouse on Spring Street downtown, where Sessions was set to appear before attending a criminal justice luncheon at the nearby Millennium Biltmore Hotel. Organizers of the Free All Families rally plan to walk to the hotel to continue their protest.

    Protesters carried signs with phrases including "Let our children go," as well as infant clothing with Bible verses written on them.

    After the protest spilled into the streets and demonstrators formed a human wall, L.A. police called the protest an unlawful assembly and gave people five minutes to clear the scene — or face arrest. Officers then made good on their promise and placed people in plastic handcuffs.

    Sessions has been a prominent defender of the White House’s immigration policy, which sparked national outrage and protests. He's gone so far as to cite the Bible to argue the morality of the policy, which led to pushback from faith leaders.

    Demonstrators were also speaking out about Trump's controversial travel ban, which was just upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. Protesters include members of local immigrant advocacy groups, labor unions and religious groups.

    "Let their children go" AND "reunite" them on their soil!

    DEPORT THEM ALL...HAND IN HAND...BACK TO THEIR COUNTRIES!
