Unos trescientos manifestantes recibieron hoy en Los Ángeles al fiscal general, Jeff Sessions, con una sonora protesta que se saldó con la detención de 23 personas y en la que le mostraron su rechazo a la política de separación de familias en la frontera y el encarcelamiento de indocumentados.

Los portavoces de la docena de organizaciones convocantes de la protesta calificaron de "racista" la política migratoria de la Administración Trump y denunciaron la "violación de los derechos de los inmigrantes".

"Sin ningún precedente, este fiscal se ha encargado de criminalizar lo que antes se veía como una falta que no ameritaba castigos federales", aseguró a Efe Jorge Mario Cabrera, portavoz de la Coalición por los Derechos Humanos de los Inmigrantes (CHIRLA).

A pesar de la presencia de los manifestantes, Sessions entró al edificio de la corte federal en Los Ángeles antes de que los manifestantes bloquearan la calle y se pudo reunir con miembros de la Fiscalía tal y como tenía previsto.

Nearly two dozen clergy members were arrested in Los Angeles Tuesday as they protested the Trump administration’s immigration policies and Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ planned visit to the area.

The religious leaders from different faith backgrounds linked arms to block Spring St. near a federal courthouse as police ordered them to disperse.

With cops threatening immediate arrest, they sat down side-by-side in the street in an act of civil disobedience organized by Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE), a spokeswoman for the group told the Daily News.

Rabbi Aryeh Cohen was one of the clergy members hauled away in plastic cuffs. Speaking to The News after his release, Cohen said he was one of 23 total clergy members cited with an infraction for failing to follow a lawful order.
