Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

ucarrest.jpgUC Regents approved a $570,000 salary for Janet Napolitano but had not yet voted on her nomination as the next university president when protestors disrupted the meeting in San Francisco, temporarily putting the meeting on hold.

Students and immigration activists testified against Napolitano, saying her role as Secretary of Homeland Security makes her a bad fit for UC, which serves a diverse student body that includes immigrants who came to the country legally and illegally.

One protestor jumped over a barrier separating the spectator area from the regents. Several of them chanted, "Undocumented is not a crime," and did not disperse after police warned them to. It appeared that police arrested at least four people.
