They chanted. They marched. They sat cross-legged on the two-lane highway in front of the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in Lower Providence Township on Thursday, closing it to traffic for more than 90 minutes.

"No papers, no fear, immigrants are marching here!" the three dozen or so demonstrators shouted.

Handcuffed and taken into custody were Jose Luna, 23; Erika Guadalupe Nunez, 21; and Sheila Quintana, 19. Luna is a cook and server in Norristown. The women are Philadelphia-area college students. The three were born in Mexico and brought to the United States as children by their parents. Undocumented, unapologetic, and unafraid are words they used to introduce themselves.
