Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) is arrested on Capitol Hill in an act of civil disobedience as thousands rallied in support of immigration reform on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 8, 2013. The demonstrators called on Congress to adopt an immigration law that would allow the nation's 12 million undocumented immigrants the ability to apply for U.S. citizenship.
