Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office

A 20-year-old self-described “human rights activist” was arrested by Lubbock Police on Tuesday during a protest near Texas Tech University. The protest was to speak out against President Donald Trump’s recent executive order on immigration.

Deema “Dima” Alhesan was arrested and charged with Obstructing a Highway.

According to Lubbock Police:

“Our officers warned the protesters multiple times to get out of the roadway. We also attempted to contact the protest organizers, with no response.

“One female who was using a bullhorn continued to enter the roadway despite multiple warnings to step back onto the curb. For her safety and the motorists’ safety, our officers made the decision to arrest the female, 20-year-old Deema Alhesan, for obstructing a highway.

“After she was detained, several other members of the protest began to yell and step into the roadway.

“Due to the safety concerns and the possibility of protesters being struck by vehicles, the decision was made to disperse the protest.”

As of 10:55 p.m. on January 31, bond had not been set, or posted, for Alhesan.
