Good thing there’s such a surplus of jobs for recent college grads in Michigan.

8 arrested at University of Michigan protest for undocumented students

Eight University of Michigan students were arrested Wednesday evening as they sat in the middle of an Ann Arbor intersection protesting for tuition equality for undocumented residents.

U-M police officers said they were arrested for obstructing traffic. They were taken to a police station and could be issued a ticket, officers said.

There were eight total arrests, seven students and one U-M almunus, said U-M police spokeswoman Diane Brown. They were all processed and released pending charges, which could be charges of disorderly conduct, disobeying a police officer or impeding traffic.

“All were very cooperative,” Brown said in an e-mail to the Free Press. “Once they were cleared out of vehicle traffic, there were no other problems.”

Yonah Lieberman, a senior from Washington, D.C., was among those who was arrested. He walked peacefully to the police car, continuing to chant.

“I’m willing to risk arrest,” he said minutes before that. “The cause is worthy enough. The students can’t get in here deserve our support.”
