MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - More than 100 people took part in a second NAACP sit-in at U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions’ Mobile office.

WALA-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2jOWrvh ) eight men and three women were arrested at the scene Monday on charges of criminal trespassing.

The first sit-in took place Jan. 3 after members of the NAACP voiced opposition to the Sessions nomination for U.S. Attorney General.

On Monday, the office was closed but protesters sat in the hallway of the office building.

WALA reports about 20 stayed on the scene after police arrived and officials asked everyone to leave the building.
