MIRAMAR, Fla. (AP) — At least 17 protesters face charges after blocking a roadway outside a South Florida office of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The Miramar Police Department said Thursday that the protesters face charges of unlawful assembly and obstructing a highway for the protest on Wednesday at a busy intersection in Miramar, Florida.

Authorities say the protesters set up tents and chairs in the road and used their bodies to stop traffic.

The police department says hundreds of vehicles had to be diverted during the protest.

Protesters all over the nation have marched outside ICE offices to object to the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy.
