LOS ANGELES (AP) - Several dozen immigrant-rights demonstrators have blocked an intersection near the downtown Los Angeles Federal Building.

Some of those involved in Tuesday's protest linked hands while lying on the pavement, and others formed a circle around them.

Organizers said in a press release they would be demanding a stop to deportation of Central American immigrant families and recognition that they are refugees seeking asylum.
