Police are arresting about two dozen protesters who sat down and blocked a street outside the U.S. attorney’s office in downtown Los Angeles to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

Officers began the arrests shortly before 10 a.m. Tuesday, a few hours before a scheduled address by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to the conservative Criminal Justice Legal Foundation’s annual meeting at a Los Angeles hotel.

Demonstrators on sidewalks cheered as the protesters in the street were calmly handcuffed by officers and led away.
