As many as 30 people were arrested Tuesday morning during an immigration demonstration in west suburban Broadview, where protesters blocked a van filled with deportees heading to O’Hare airport from a federal detention center.
NBC Chicago reports that the protesters arrived at 5 a.m. “to march and sound off about the deportation of an estimated 70 undocumented immigrants from the Broadview Immigration and Detention Center.” [...]
In Broadview Tuesday morning, demonstrators chanted “Illinois is not Arizona” as they blocked the van of deportees, NBC Chicago reports. They also chanted “no deportations today!”
If the Democrats can manage to line up with the demonstrators without fumbling over themselves, the backlash to the Republican law in Arizona will have a decades-long impact.
