District 3 Arizona Congressman Raul Grijalva arrested

District 3 Arizona Congressman Raul Grijalva (D), along with Representatives Green, Crowley, Lewis, Schkowsky, Rangel, Ellison, and Gutierrez. were arrested in Washington, D.C. today during a "planned civil disobedience" demonstration that took place on the “legally closed” National Mall, but was allowed by the National Parks Service because it was considered a rally guarded by the First Amendment

The rally was organized by a group called Camino Americano and was aimed at urging Congress to pass immigration reform allowing individuals who are illegally in the U.S. to apply for citizenship.

Grijalva was booked around 1:45 p.m. Arizona time and is expected to be released this evening,  according to Grijalva's spokesman Adam Sarvana. It will remain to bee seen if he is actually prosecuted.
