Immigration protesters halt bus, block parking lot

TUCSON - An immigration protest in Tucson has stopped a bus carrying detainees and blocked entry into the federal courthouse's parking lot.

A dozen demonstrators used chains and pipes to lock themselves to the wheels of the bus Friday. It's stopped on a nearby Interstate 10 frontage road.

Another group of demonstrators similarly fastened themselves to the courthouse's parking entryway to block access.



The protesters say they're trying to halt court proceedings that lead to deportations.

As of noon, Tucson Police and officers with the Department of Public Safety were using a saw to cut the chains binding the protesters to the bus.
