    Several protesters were arrested Tuesday morning outside the Department of Justice in Northwest D.C.

    Members of the Home Defenders League set up a small encampment overnight to protest the home foreclosure crisis. The group called on the Justice Department to arrest Wall Street bankers.

    Police removed the facade of a home the protestors set up on the steps of the Justice Department before the beginning of the business day.

    At least nine people were arrested, Megan McGrath reported.
