WASHINGTON (AP) — A spokeswoman for Democratic Rep. John Lewis says the congressman was arrested during an immigration rally in Washington. Brenda Jones says Lewis, whose district covers Atlanta and some of its neighboring areas, was arrested Tuesday afternoon during the Camino Americano Rally for Immigrant Dignity and Respect. Jones says Lewis was taken into custody in front of the U.S. Capitol, near the reflecting pond. Jones says Lewis has now been arrested five times as a member of Congress. Lewis was arrested twice at the South African embassy protesting apartheid and twice at the Sudanese embassy protesting genocide in Darfur. Jones says Lewis was also arrested more than 40 times during the civil rights movement.
