Five protesters arrested in Faso's office

Dec 19, 2017 1:30 pm
Steve Hughes in the Albany Times Union reports that five protesters who refused to leave Congressman John Faso’s District Office in Kinderhook on Dec. 18 were arrested and charged with trespass. Four Columbia County residents, and one from Kingston, were issued appearance tickets to Kinderhook village court. “Deputies spoke with protestors to try and avoid any arrests by just encouraging them to leave the office on their own,” Sheriff David P. Bartlett said. Protesters, some from the Columbia County Sanctuary Movement, gathered to advocate for Faso's support of the Clean DREAM Act. Faso has said he will vote for other bills that allow some children of immigrants to stay in the country, but not the Clean DREAM Act. Read the full story in the Albany Times Union.
