Protesters blocked traffic on Congress Parkway in the Loop during Chicago’s Tuesday morning rush hour, demonstrating against the treatment of immigration families.
Protesters chained themselves together and firefighters were on the scene to cut the chains. Demonstrators also were standing on ladders and sitting in the street with linked arms, chanting things such as “Unafraid, unafraid” along with groups of people standing on the sidewalk.

The group said that other demonstrators were planning to read a declaration inside the nearby federal Regional Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Field Office.
