“Six protestors were restrained and taken away by police this morning , as they protested outside the Alabama Senate door this morning in opposition to Alabama’s stringent immigration law.
The protestors, who called themselves Alabama’s Conscience, kneeled outside the Senate chamber door singing Amazing Grace and wearing T-shirts that read “Repeal Alabama’s Pain.” State House security called police because they said the protesters were being disruptive and blocking the flow of foot traffic.
The group included a minister, a former undocumented immigrant and a woman carrying her 6-month-old son…
Hope Hamilton Schumacher, held her six-month old baby Amos during the peaceful demonstration, passing him to her husband as an officer came to lead her away.“For all the mothers,” Schumacher of Birmingham, shouted in Spanish.
“For all the mothers that have been separated from their children,” she followed in English.
The protest coincided with the National Day of Prayer.”
