MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Ten people were arrested for civil disobedience on Monday while temporarily blocking the entrance to PortMiami while protesting Haitian deportations.

Dozens of people took part in the so-called ‘Rally 4 Citizenship’ protest.

Wearing “protect Black immigrants” T-shirts and literally using their bodies to block the road, the group urged Vice President Kamala Harris to use her power as presiding officer over the Senate to create a pathway to citizenship in the Build Back Better plan that they said millions deserve.

The group blocked traffic near the Torch of Friendship for several hours.

The Torch of Friendship was built in 1960 to signify the passageway for immigrants from Latin America and the Caribbean to the U.S.
