Top Democrat Handcuffed, ARRESTED on Capitol Hill

Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez has been busted… again. He was among 200 protesters arrested Wednesday on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. These were pro-Amnesty demonstrators. He joined members of the Service Employee’s International Union who proceeded to storm the Capitol steps demanding that bipartisan legislation be passed that would protect “Dreamers.” That would be those who fall under the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program.

Back in September, President Trump announced he would be ending the DACA program that was created by Barack Obama. This ‘illegal’ program allowed in illegal immigrants and their children. It’s chain migration. The children were brought in illegally by their parents and special allowances were then made by Obama so they could stay. They don’t have legal status, but they did get temporary protection from deportation and permission to work. That’s ending now and Gutierrez doesn’t like it at all. He’s a racist and a communist, so it offends him doubly so.

These protesters vowed hundreds would be arrested during its “civil disobedience action.” They made good on that promise. Gutierrez had pledged he would be arrested as well and the police granted his wish. Gutierrez and other protesters wore green gloves and green armbands to signify their pledge to be arrested. The Senate and the House are in a budget stalemate and the program is ostensibly caught in the middle. It could lead to a government shutdown if a spending bill is not passed by midnight Friday. It shouldn’t be any part of a spending bill.

“Congress refuses to act, and it’s killing us,” one protester said. No, it’s about to right a wrong. If you are not here legally and are violating the law, regardless of how you got here, you need to leave and come back legally. It’s just that simple. Immigration advocates are pushing Congress to act, fearing it’s the last opportunity for Republicans and Democrats to strike a deal over the contentious issue, according to AZ Central. I hope they fail to act and that DACA ends. It should never have existed in the first place.

The protesters were evidently mostly peaceful for a change. Those arrested were not placed in handcuffs. A makeshift processing center held those arrested before being transported by bus to jail. This is not about civil rights, it’s about the rule of law and enforcing it. I’m not impressed by those seeking to be arrested in the name of DACA.

Gutierrez announced he’s not running for his seat in the 2018, but he is considering a run for presidency in 2020 just as I predicted. He’s a radical activist for those such as La Raza, which means ‘The Race’. There’s not a chance in hell he’ll be elected, but he’s going for it. It’s a pity that Gutierrez doesn’t stay behind bars where he belongs.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez was among the 200 protesters arrested Wednesday on U.S. Capitol steps. The protesters are demanding lawmakers pass legislation that would provide protection for the “Dreamers.”
