LOS ANGELES, CA — About two dozen clergy members were arrested Tuesday outside the federal courthouse on Spring Street after linking arms and defying a warning from police to disperse while protesting U.S. immigration policy ahead of a visit by Attorney General Jeff Sessions' later Tuesday.

The clergy members were among several hundred protesters who had gathered with an array of immigrant advocacy groups that are planning a full day of protests, rallies and marches as Sessions visits downtown amid an ongoing outcry over the Trump administration's now-rescinded policy of separating children from their parents when they are apprehended at the Mexican border by U.S. officials.
