SACRAMENTO (CBS13) Sacramento Police officers clad in riot gear raided an immigration protest on Tuesday.
Officers temporarily shut down N Street between Sixth and Seventh streets and got right to work, lifting heavy pieces of furniture including beds and couches, and it all up into truck beds.
Weve had complaints of their presence noise and inability to get through the sidewalk, said Sacramento Police Capt. Norm Leong.
Police say they collected whats been illegally stored for the last five days. But activists say they were just protesting President Trumps immigration policies, and claim what may have looked like a campsite is just part of their message.
Every couch is representative of every mother we want to bring comfort to who lost their child to hands of law enforcement. Every tent symbolizes a cage with a child in. And every banner a voice to an outside neighbor, said Protestor Mackenzie Wilson.
Attorneys with the National Lawyers Guild say they plan to sue the police department, alleging the police raid violated protesters rights to free speech.

Give her an "A+" for improvisation.
Props for Propaganda.
My couch just represents a place to watch TV and pick my nose.
They need to arrest/detain everyone they can catch and get their names, addresses.
They should be processed for prosecution.
Find out who they are and start investigating their network and organizations.
Letting them walk away empowers them and will only encourage them to organize more protests.
Get their names and arrest records.
This will act as a determent.
They let all the rioters in Wash DC at the inauguration go free. Is there a PD or Mayor anywhere with the courage to get theses people charged and brought to trial?
That's funny. My mother thought the couch was representative of every father who wanted to recline and catnap in front of the television after mowing the yard.
Police on Monday arrested protesters who had been camping outside the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in San Francisco to demonstrate against federal policies that separated families at the border and to call for the abolishment of the agency.

Lots of people are getting tired of these folks.
Wonder what each pile of human feces represents?
I hear that. Last Saturday I finished mowing the lawn then sat watching baseball in my underwear drinking a beer. I was having a great time until security at Best Buy and told me to get out.
Time, place, and manner of this “free speech” is wrong.
My mother always used to tell us that the couch in the TV room was for all of us and the couch in the living room was for ‘’company’’.
You are waaaaaay to nice.
Every one of those idiots protesting upholding the sovereignty and laws of the country is representative of the damage done to the country by the Ministry of Indoctrination (education academia) and the Ministry of Propaganda
