LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police broke up a demonstration in a Los Angeles park for and against immigration policies and arrested one of the organizers.
About 300 people took part in the protest against illegal immigration organized by homeless advocate Ted Hayes. That, in turn, drew counter-demonstrators.
A line of police separated both sides at Leimert Park. There was a lot of shouting but no violence.
Just before 4 p.m. officers said the parade permit had expired and dispersed the crowd. Hayes continued to march and wave a banner and was eventually arrested.
