Police arrested 18 people protesting policies pushed by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach after the demonstrators occupied part of his office.
Police led them past other protesters to a bus waiting outside the Kobachs office.
Rachel Shivers, with the Kansas Poor Peoples Campaign, said they targeted Kobachs office because of his work on immigration issues and his support for strict voting laws.
