Police have turned away a-half dozen protesters who have occupied Rep. Paul Ryan's Kenosha office since last week.

The demonstrators were told Wednesday that the congressman's staff and the building's owner signed complaints that bar them from entering.

The group began their protest last Thursday. Organizer Shanon Molina says they want to meet with Ryan to talk about jobs. Ryan hasn't been in the Kenosha office since the demonstration began. His staff has offered to set up a conference call with Ryan or have the group submit a written request to meet with the congressman in the future.

The Kenosha News says the protesters have declined those offers.

A similar sit-in at Ryan's Racine office has been allowed to continue.
