More than 100 demonstrators at an immigration reform rally outside the Federal Building in downtown Seattle have moved into the lobby of a nearby building that houses an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency office and court.
A group including Seattle City Councilman Larry Gossett locked arms during the noon hour Thursday and blocked the elevators.
The crowd is chanting "Obama, you promised; you've got to keep your promise!'' and carrying signs that say "Immigration Reform Now" and "America Show Your Morals." Michelle Obama this week faced a question on immigration from a second-grader when she visited a school in DC with the wife of the Mexican President Felipe Calderon. WATCH
The rally includes a coalition of groups organized by the OneAmerica organization. On its website it calls for pressure on the Obama administration to pass an immigration reform bill this year.
