In Philadelphia, police arrested six immigrant rights activists Wednesday as they held a sit-in protest at Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign headquarters. The protesters are demanding that Biden apologize for the roughly 3 million deportations that occurred while he served as vice president under Barack Obama. They’re also seeking a commitment by Biden to end immigration detentions and deportations on his first day in office.
