I hope they experience the toughest the law can hand out, but know they won't. Tying up traffic, usurping the time of the police, free room and board in already crowded jails, probable, impending bogus lawsuits regarding feigned injuries, forbidden medical treatment, denial of water, etc. = just more examples of how the illegal immigrants are draining our system...what a waste.

Let's bill the protesters for the ruckus they caused.

See how they react.

A few weeks ago the same tactic was used in West Los Angeles outside the Federal Building when dozens of students sat down on Wilshire Blvd and blocked traffic during the rush hour. These are civil disobedience tactics that draw attention to the problem but also inconvenience regular people going about their day. Once an LA freeway was blocked\ locked down by protesters of the Iraq war and caused a traffic jam miles long. I don't think commuters were happy with the protesters even if they also opposed the Arizona law.

I think civil disobedience should be limited to Arizona not California where the state is actually leading the boycott.

If people in California want to be ignorant let them, it's never stopped them before!

You do have a point there.It would make more sense to take this to Arizona.Blocking West LA has got to be a lot worse than Santa Ana.Also since Orange County has started to put Immigration holds on those arrested for various crimes protesters that p** off SAPD and headed to OC Main jail just a stones throw from where these protesters were arrested stand a chance of being turned over to ICE if they are Illegal.
