Youngstown Police arrested five people Monday protesting the treatment of detained immigrants at the Northeast Ohio Correctional Center. Four of the five are area ministers.  

The clergymen and a Canton businessman who accompanied them were taken into custody for blocking the entrance to the privately operated prison.
