ILLINOIS -- A congressman and congresswoman had a little trouble with the law recently. Luis Gutierrez and Jan Schakowsky are both Democrats from the Chicago area.

They were arrested Tuesday for blocking the street during a peaceful protest about immigration reform. In all, eight lawmakers were arrested. Each faced small fines and were released shortly thereafter.
