Saturday at the start of a protest march across the Massena-Cornwall International Bridge in Massena.

In a tense moment during an otherwise peaceful protest Saturday, Border Patrol officers tried to block two photographers, including a Times photojournalist, from covering the Mohawk march across the Massena-Cornwall International Bridge.

Jason Hunter, the Times staff member, was approaching the bridge alongside the marchers and ignored a demand from a Border Patrol agent to stop. He then was grabbed by a male officer who tried to separate him from the marchers.
