Several Democratic reps arrested at immigration rally on 'closed' National Mall [pics]

As Twitchy reported yesterday, the administration had no problems trying to lock World War II veterans out of Washington’s war memorials last week, but the red carpet was rolled out on the National Mall today for a previously scheduled immigration reform rally. The Park Service determined that the “Camino Americano: March for Immigrant Dignity and Respect,” sponsored in part by the SEIU and AFL-CIO, was covered under the First Amendment.

Despite the shutdown, there were plenty of Capitol police on hand to greet hundreds of protesters.

Several of those on hand for the march were members of Congress, and several were arrested, including Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.).

Rep. Nancy Pelosi reportedly thanked President Obama personally for opening the Mall to the protest.

With immigration reform on the back burner, turnout was far below the tens of thousands who were expected.
