11 people were arrested protesting Sen. Jeff Sessions nomination outside of his Mobile, AL office

Mobile, AL (CNN) – Eleven protesters were arrested Monday outside of Senator Jeff Sessions office in Mobile, Alabama.

Sessions is president Trump’s pick for Attorney General.

USA Today reports it was a repeat sit-in to protest the senator’s nomination.

NAACP President Cornell W. Brooks was among those arrested.

Brooks and five others were in court on Monday to face trespassing charges for a January 3rd sit-in outside the same office.

According to USA Today, the judge dismissed the case when they got to court.

Brooks and other NAACP leaders later went to sessions’ office and staged another sit-in.

After about an hour, Mobile Police arrested them.

The Civil Rights group says they oppose the conservative Republican for his opposition to the voting rights act.
