FAIRFAX, Va. (CBSDC/AP) – Nine people were arrested during a protest outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in northern Virginia on Monday morning, authorities say.

The nine were among a group of about 60 protesters who formed a human chain Monday outside the ICE building in Fairfax County. County police told the group they had a right to protest but would be arrested if they blocked the road.

Carolina Velez with the Richmond-based Wayside Center for Popular Education tells The Associated Press that the protesters lay across the roadway to protest an increase in deportations to nearly 400,000 annually since President Barack Obama took power in 2009. The protesters linked arms using sections of PVC pipe in an effort to stop buses from leaving the detention center with deportees.

Protesters kept police busy for 3 hours.When are they going to start locking up these protesters ? They do not know who or what is on that bus. I suppose if some sex offenders, MS 13 gang members, drug smugglers,and those who have committed serious crimes or ignored orders to leave the country, if these protesters had their way they would all be off that bus.

I’m thinking that if the police used a blow torch to cut the chains that there would not be a repeat of this.

To say the least, taxcontrol!

All we really need to do is round them up, sort out who's who and who's from where, and deport the illegal aliens. How hard is that to figure out?

ICE missed a good chance to arrest and deport a few more illegals.

Rachel Corrie (to the tune of Richard Cory)

They say that Rachel Corrie has been flattened to the ground
With Palestinian connections, she now looks like ground round.
Born into liberality, a Commie couple’s wayward child,
She had everything a nut could want: burka, back hair, scowl.

But I…I work for posterity
And I bless the life I'm living
And I bless prosperity
And I'm glad that I won't be,
Oh, I'm glad that I won't be,
Oh, I'm glad that I won't be
Flat like Rachel Corrie.

The papers print her picture almost everywhere she goes:
Rachel Corrie at the Intifada, Rachel Corrie makes a show.
And the nature of her politics and the jihad bug she's caught.
Oh, she surely must be happy with everything she's got.

But I…I work for posterity
And I bless the life I'm living
And I bless prosperity
And I'm glad that I won't be,
Oh, I'm glad that I won't be,
Oh, I'm glad that I won't be
Flat like Rachel Corrie.

She freely gave to terrorists, she had the Muzzie touch,
And they were grateful for her patronage and thanked her very much.
So my mind was filled with wonder when the evening headlines read:
“Rachel Corrie went to a protest last night…and a ‘dozer squished her flat instead.”

But I…I work for posterity
And I bless the life I'm living
And I bless prosperity
And I'm glad that I won't be,
Oh, I'm glad that I won't be,
Oh, I'm glad that I won't be
Flat like Rachel Corrie.

Why sort them out— ship the whole bunch out and let them worry about getting back.

Easiest solution is to leave them alone. Why not just leave them chained out in the weather?

It’s time for ICE to man up, tell the Kenyan to go ***** himself and arrest and then deport these maggots. As a matter of fact, take them down and chain them to the fence on the south side of the border. They aren’t Americans. They need to take their complaints to THEIR OWN government.

They try that kind of monkeyshines here in Tucson, too. They chain themselves to desks at city board meetings, stop deportation buses, protest border stations. They are ridiculous.

If you like American citizenship so much, why don’t you act like a model citizen, instead of like little radicals.
