Border Patrol agents had taken four activists into custody Tuesday night when 100 demonstrators formed a human chain around a Border Patrol vehicle in an attempt to stop agents from taking two men from a Tucson traffic stop, according to the newspaper.

Eight members of Congress were arrested for acts of civil disobedience at an immigration rally earlier this week on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The rally was part of an effort to get Congress to take up immigration reform legislation that has languished since June.
