A large group of professors, most of them from Harvard, decided to protest DACA by blocking traffic on a street near the Ivy League school this week. Then they got arrested.
The College Fix reported:
More than thirty professors arrested during pro-DACA street protest
Nearly three dozen professors from Harvard and other universities were arrested yesterday during a street protest in support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration program.
In all, thirty-one professors were arrested “for blocking traffic…in protest of President Donald Trump’s decision to rescind an Obama-era program that gives legal protections to undocumented young people,” The Harvard Crimson reports.
The instructors were engaging in “a planned act of civil disobedience,” according to The Crimson, “forming a human chain and blocking traffic on [Massachusetts Avenue].” Local police forewarned the protesting faculty that they would be arrested if they did not move.
The professors face charges of “disturbing the peace,” and their bail was set at $40, according to a local police spokesman.
Here’s a video from the scene:
