At the office on Friday, protesters were able to block off a parking lot where agency vans are held, effectively preventing ICE officers from conducting raids.

"ICE agents were not able to use their trucks to go out and terrorize our communities," said Aurora Castellanos, a UC Berkeley freshman who helped organize the rally. "We want to make sure that through our organizing, ICE officials will not be able to do that any more."

Three BART stations-Richmond, Fruitvale and the Coliseum-were shut down after 200 high school students attempted to board the trains to get to the protest without paying, protesters said.

BART officials confirmed that the three stations were shut down due to police action.

Other protesters said the fight for immigrant rights would continue among individuals in both the cities and on the UC Berkeley campus.

"We're demanding that California be a sanctuary state, beginning with our schools and universities," said Ronald Cruz, an organizer for By Any Means Necessary, an immigration rights group. "We're demanding that UC Berkeley protect our undocumented students and become a sanctuary campus."

They really just keep pushing the envelope don't they? One thing's for sure, no matter who wins this election, the American people have spoken. The winner of the election better consider himself warned.

What's sad is that no matter who gets elected, the problem only figures to keep getting worse. Obama and McCain's immigration policies are virtually identical.

Disgusting situation, JDubsMom.

Unfortunately, we cannot blame the students completely considering the ridiculous lopsided message their parents (using that term loosely) as well as the Elected Officials in that area have been sending for years.

I'm not very worried considering that Congress has the final say on whether amnesty will be granted. Bush tried to push for it twice and it never passed.

In addition, with the economy the way it is it seems that amnesty may not be supported as much for the time being.
