YAKIMA, Wash. More than 50 demonstrators marched in front of the federal courthouse in downtown Yakima on Tuesday to protest the arrest of 30 illegal immigrants in Ellensburg last week.
Most of the demonstrators were students at Ellensburg High School, where some of the suspects children attended.
The marchers say the arrested people were only trying to support their families by working in the United States. The families will be split up by the arrests, critics say.
Charging documents filed in U.S. District Court allege that the defendants used counterfeit identity documents to obtain work.

Its often difficult to read sarcasm in posts.
I wasn’t being sarcastic. I really do think entire families should be deported if they are here illegally.
You breaks the law, you takes your chances.
You and me both.
I detest the whole idea of anchor babies.
I misunderstood. I thought you meant let ‘em stay here to keep families intact. That is a position I cannot agree with.
That’s right. Hard labor. People just don’t know the value of hard labor any more. We were headed to an outdoor symphony several years ago in Charlotte and there was a guy with a sign that said, ‘Will work for food’. We offered him some chicken if he would be our butler and serve us wine and carry the cooler to our blanket. He disrespectfully declined.
Sheesh. Must not have been that hungry.
“Thats just cruel, keep the families together,
deport them all.
Be nice, think of the chilren.”
That’s what used to happen. Then the kids decide to come back when old enough.
