Police arrest 11 people protesting Alabama's new immigration law at statehouse, capitol
By The Associated Press

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) ' Police have arrested 11 people protesting Alabama's strict new immigration law.

About 100 people took part in the protest Tuesday at the Statehouse and nearby Capitol building in downtown Montgomery as a light rain fell.

The demonstrators, most of whom were Hispanic, first marched around the Capitol and then headed to the Statehouse. Most appeared to be college-age and chanted slogans as they walked.

Some of the demonstrators were sitting down on a street when police approached and warned them in English and Spanish that they would be arrested if they didn't move.

None of the protesters moved and police arrested them, tying their hand with yellow straps and loading them into a city bus. It was unclear what charges the protesters would face.
