Three Democratic Congressmen Have Been Arrested

Three Democrats, currently serving as Representatives have been arrested this afternoon outside of Trump Tower for their actions during a DACA protest.

They are Rep. Luis Gutirrrez, Rep. Raúl Grijalva and Rep. Adriano Espaillat. Below, we’ve compiled a quick rundown of the three Representatives.

In the early afternoon in New York, outside of Trump Tower, the three Congressmen were arrested along with other lawmakers where they were with a large crowd of fellow protesters. Early reports indicate that they were sitting in the street outside of the building, blocking traffic. Donald Trump himself was in the building at the time, after yesterday’s speech at the United Nations.

City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito was also arrested in the same wave. She said that they were there to “defend our immigrant communities” before she and the others were bundled off on to a Department of Correction bus. “We don’t want families to be divided.”

The protest was in support of illegal immigrants, specifically the children of illegal immigrants whose parents brought them into the country as minors.

Rep. Espaillat, who was arrested, said “[Illegals] deserve to stay in America. They are workers, students, soldiers in our armed forces.”

My thought — the soldiers can stay. Everyone else has to go back.

Here are the three Congressmen arrested:

Rep. Luis Gutirrrez


Rep. Raul Grijalva


Rep. Adriano Espaillat
