Dozens Arrested as Part of DACA Protest in Downtown Indy

Protesters gathered outside the office of Sen. Joe Donnelly Tuesday morning.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Dozens of arrests were made at a DACA protest in downtown Indianapolis Tuesday morning.

A multi-faith group showed up outside of Senator Joe Donnelly's office Tuesday for a press conference about their support for funding for DACA and the Dreamers in the state of Indiana and the country as a whole.

The group then formed a human chain across the intersection toward the Statehouse, blocking traffic illegally. 

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers cordially requested the group disperse, and when they did not, began making peaceful arrests.
