3 Democratic Congressmen Arrested For Protesting Outside Trump Tower

Three Demcratic Congressmen were arrested this morning while protesting outside President Trump's Manhattan residence, to demand action to shield young illegal immigrants from deportation.

Democratic Reps. Luis Gutierrez (Ill.), Raul Grijalva (Ariz.) and Adriano Espaillat (N.Y.) were all arrested while rallying outside Trump Tower.

This is not Gutierrez' first arrest.

As The Hill reports, he has been busy...

Tuesday marked the second time in five weeks that Gutierrez was arrested as part of an immigration protest.


Gutierrez was also arrested in mid-August outside the White House during a rally commemorating the fifth anniversary of DACA.


He had been arrested outside the White House twice before that, in 2010 and 2011, during similar protests.


Gutierrez was additionally arrested at a Chicago Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in March while protesting deportations of DACA recipients.

The lawmakers and advocacy groups are pressing Trump to work with Congress to pass a “clean” version of the DREAM Act granting undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children a path to citizenship, without including border security measures meant to placate immigration hawks.

“We’re taking the necessary steps to make it clear to President Trump, the Republicans and the Democrats that we will continue this peaceful fight for DREAMers and immigrants as long as it takes to enact legislation and put DREAMers in a safe place,” Gutierrez, the chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Immigration Task Force, said in a statement.

Finaly, this comes just a day after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was shouted down by protesters during a press conference in San Francisco on Monday who called for a "clean" DREAM Act, demonstrating the risks Democratic leaders face from the left for working with Trump...

This is just typical liberal grandstanding.  They are FOR these "illegal" immigrants flooding into our country, ONLY because they think they will all vote DEMOCRAT in future elections.  If they thought they would vote REPUBLICAN, they would be voting for a border wall, and every law they could to kick those people out of the country.  MOAR HIPOCRACY!!!

Ok, so it's crack-down time on 2 year old illegal immigrants and their parents...BUTWhen are we going to crack-down on the (somtimes Billionaire) executives that encounraged, and employed, those illegal parents to come to the USA in the first place?~~~~~~~~Example:Kendall and Jackson (wino's) became billionaires on the backs of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT LABOR EXPLOITATION...passing 100's of millions in social costs onto the backs for CA taxpayers.When are we going to "crack-down" on them?

The horror in all this is the Real Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths like

Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopath Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Wasserman-Shultz, Wiener, Abedin, Podesta,

Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopath Obama, Lynch, Clapper, Jarret, Brennan.....etc.....

Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Psychopath George Bush Senior & Jr., Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Rice....etc.....

The real, out in the open in your Face

Tyrannical Lawlessness

Criminals at Large continue to walk free.

To this day.

Explain to me again how we're not

Tyrannically Lawless?

Here's a rip I posted on yesterday's Manafort wiretapping thread. Enjoy.

"Manafort has been under an ongoing wiretap, approved by the FISA courts, going back to 2014 and tied to his consulting arrangements with Ukraine's former ruling."

Ha! That's nothing.

The entire US populace has been under metadata surveillance since that little pesky AT&T room 641A & since October 2001. Right after the False Flag of 911.


According to the Times piece, the siphoning of internet data from AT&T began in 2003 and continued for a decade in a relationship that the NSA called “highly collaborative.” The telecom giant, according to one Snowden document, was extremely willing to help out the spy agency, and its engineers “were the first to try out new surveillance technologies invented by the eavesdropping agency.”

According to the Times, AT&T began turning over emails and other internet data to the spy agency around October 2001, even before the secret rooms were built, in a program dubbed “Fairview.” The program forwarded 400 billion Internet metadata records to the NSA’s headquarters at Ft. Meade in Maryland—which included the senders and recipients of emails and other details, but not the content of the correspondence. AT&T also forwarded more than one million emails a day to be run through the NSA’s keyword selection system. In September 2003, AT&T apparently enabled a new collection capability for the spy agency, which amounted to a “‘live’ presence on the global net.” The Times doesn’t elaborate on what this involved.


The Illegal, Criminal surveillance continues to this day with Impunity especially after the Criminal Centralized Telecommunications Companies were given retroactive immunity by a Criminal, Tyrannical Lawless Supreme Court.

It's the exact reason why the absolute, complete, open in your Face

Tyrannical Lawlessness

continues to this day.

But in the US, large and powerful actors must not be and are not subject to the rule of law. So telecoms hired former government officials from both parties to lobby for them and poured money into the coffers of key Democratic Senators such as Intelligence Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller (who became the chief advocate of telecom immunity).

In 2008, the industry obtained an extraordinary act of Congress that gave them the gift of retroactive immunity from all criminal and civil liability for their participation in the illegal eavesdropping programs aimed at Americans on US soil. The immunity was enacted by an overwhelming bipartisan vote, with the support of leading Democrats including Barack Obama, who had promised - when seeking his party's nomination - to filibuster any bill that contained retroactive telecom immunity.


So, to my point, from my post above. Please someone, anyone. Please explain to me how we are not presently

Tyrannically Lawless.

Man robs store.

Gets away with tons of loot.

Moves to different part of the country and starts a new life using the stolen money. Meets woman, they marry and have kids.

Years later man is tracked down & arrested.

Should the family be allowed to keep the money, house, car, and other goods purchased with the stolen money ? Should they benefit from a crime, even if they didn't know about it ?

Of course not. That would be ridiculous.

I rest my case.

3 Democratic Congressmen Arrested For Protesting Outside Trump TowerMy response: Yes indeed, the SWAMP understands that they BROKE THE LAW and now they are trying to cover it up with some sort of 'SOCIAL JUSTICE" demonstration masquerading as a community organizing event.When I look at these DEMOCRATS, the only thought the comes to mind is "There go three GALACTICALLY STUPID PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL MARXISTS" who are nothing but USEFUL IDIOTS for immigrant lawbreakers.Truly sad it has come to this point in America.This morning at the UN, GOD sounded His 'TRUMP'et for the world to see and hear.The year 2017 is going to end with a BANG!!!

LOL...these politicians could give a cold shit about these ILLEGAL immigrants...they are protesting on behalf of thier corporate donors whom are "concerned" about the dwindling supply of exploitable, illegal, labor.If Trump "sends them all back"; corporate America may just have to pay "living wages" again, like my parents earned...we can't have that...

FireBrander ...I agree with your statement as well as what I wrote. I want to suggest that it is NOT JUST corporate America that these three men were beholding to, but these DEMOCRATS know very well that these same illegal immigrants cast many votes to get them into office in the first place. Without the illegal vote, the DEMOCRATS don't have a leg to stand on when it comes to the next election.I am sure there were some illegals who followed the DEMOCRAT voting rule of VOTE EARLY, VOTE OFTEN. With no VOTER ID LAW, it is pretty easy to corrupt the voting system.
