Pro-Immigration Protesters Temporarily Blocked I-676 Ramp, Got Arrested

Activists shut down a Vine Street Expressway ramp around noon.

A group of protesters temporarily blocked traffic near the Vine Street Expressway in Center City around noon.

The crowd was reportedly protesting the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement’s treatment of immigrants as well as the Supreme Court’s recent deadlock on President Barack Obama’s immigration plan.

They blocked an off-ramp connecting I-676 to Broad Street for less than an hour, according to CBS. The ramp has been reopened.

Police have reportedly made arrests. The crowd has dispersed.
