Reps. Luis Gutierrez, Keith Ellison, Joseph Crowley, Al Green, and John Lewis were among the arrested, as crowds bellowed Si se puede! The arrested, including other protesters, were led away in zip-wire handcuffs by Capitol Police, which have been on the job but forgoing pay since the government shut down. It was all a planned portion of a massive immigration rally that began on the National Mall on Tuesday morning. Organizers estimated 20,000 protesters attended at the peak of the rally.

The lawmakers will each need to post a $50 fine, and there will likely be an Ethics Committee report generated as a result of the incident, according to one aide.

House Democrats introduced last week an immigration proposal that would remove a controversial border security measure from a comprehensive bill approved by the Senate in June.

It is what it is and it ain't what it ain't. Also there's pandas.
