June 28, 2011, Georgia Capitol: Rolando Zenteno, 16, is arrested this afternoon by Capitol police. He along with five other undocumented youths blocked traffic by sitting on the ground in the street near the Gold Dome to protest Georgia's controversial immigration law.
"I am so happy to do this because we need to stand up for what we believe," Ibarra, a senior at Pebblebrook High School, said before being arrested. "I am tired of having to live in the shadows."
Protest organizers say the students arrested were Dulce Guerrero, 18; Jessica Vasquez, 18; Rolando Zenteno, 16; Nataly Ibarra, 16; Felipe Baeza, 24; and Leeidy Solis, 16.
