Ten Undocumented Immigrants Arrested Protesting President Obama's Deportation Record at the DNC

Yesterday afternoon ten undocumented immigrants were arrested in Charlotte after shutting down an intersection, and refusing police orders to dispurse.  At the time of their arrest they were protesting President Obama's deportation record that has resulted in the destruction of more families than at any time in history.

In total, 50 people traveled from Phoenix to Charlotte on the "Undocubus" in an effort to draw attention to the harm that is being caused by this administration's immigration enforcement policies.  According to the Applied Research Center, in the first half of 2011, 22% of all individuals deported by the current administartion have U.S. citizen children.
