Eight U.S. Lawmakers Among 200 Arrested in Washington Protest for Immigration Reform

Washington, October 9 (RHC)-- More than 200 people were arrested in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday in a massive rally for immigration reform in the United States.

Eight House Democrats, including Rep. John Lewis, Rep. Charles Rangel were among those detained, joining with immigration activists for a sit-in on a street in front of the Capitol.

The lawmakers were arrested after addressing a crowd of thousands of people. Immigration reform has stalled in the House of Representatives after the Senate approved a landmark measure in June.
