A dozen people seeking immigration reform were arrested at a protest outside the Spokane office of Republican Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Spokane.

About 50 protesters on Wednesday demanded the U.S. House of Representatives pass comprehensive immigration reform.

The Spokesman-Review says the 12 people arrested by Spokane police were members of One America, a national group. Police say they were arrested for interfering with traffic after sitting in the middle of the street and refusing to move.

The protest was aimed at McMorris Rodgers, the third-ranking member of the GOP, and at House Speaker John Boehner.

Protesters say Boehner is blocking legislation passed by the Senate that would beef up border security and create a new program for undocumented residents to apply for legal status.
