Filmed by Trey Yingst and Ford Fischer, this raw footage details a protest and subsequent mass arrest in front of the White House lawn. Thousands of protestors collected in front of the White House to ask for immigration reform from President Barack Obama. After about ten minutes, park police announced that the sidewalk and street were “closed” and began using horses and wooden batons to force the crowd back. Several protestors sat and refused to exit the area, and at 20 minutes into the video, the park police back a truck up towards them and use zip-ties to arrest them one by one.
