Illegal DREAMERS March 250 Miles To Big Rally In DC… Completely Shocked When Busted (Video)
Let these arrests be the first of many. Lawbreakers protesting to continue to break the law. How has this worked for so long?
They can continue their march right back across the same border they illegally crossed to get here. They have NO RIGHTS to make demands in a country of which they are NOT a citizen. Where do they get the idea they have the privilege to break laws of the US! What a pity more of them didn’t get arrested.
HAPPENING NOW: Undocumented youth who walked 250 miles from N.Y. to D.C. shutting down the street in front of the U.S. Capitol. They have a simple message; Congress and Trump must stop playing games with our lives. We need the #DreamActNow!
Illegal DREAMERs marched 250 miles from New York City to Washington DC to demand Congress give them amnesty.
Unfortunately for them, they were arrested outside the city limits. They will miss the rally.
They’re illegal, shutting down streets AND blocking traffic.
And they are completely perplexed on why they were arrested? More

The activists are with the Cosecha movement.
Six activists, including five undocumented youth, were arrested Thursday afternoon in a peaceful protest outside the U.S. Capitol and the Supreme Court demanding a Clean Dream Act. The protestors were all participants in the 250-mile Walk to Stay Home from New York City to Washington, D.C. to demand permanent protection for undocumented youth. The 15-day march, which crossed six states and inspired solidarity rallies in across the East Coast, concluded with today’s demonstration.
The Walk to Stay Home marks six months since the Trump administration’s decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in September, putting hundreds of thousands of undocumented youth at risk of losing their work permits and protection from deportation. Despite repeated public commitments to protect Dreamers, Congress has failed to pass any legislation granting protection to undocumented youth.
“I walked 250 miles to the Capitol and passed through many communities that opened their homes to us. And yet now that we are here, Congress has closed their door,” said Aldo Solano, a DACA recipient from Oregon and one of the arrested protesters. “The undocumented community cannot wait for Congress to catch up to our lives!”
You aren’t dreamers. You are illegals. You have no right to demand anything. You are still breaking the law shutting down roads. Not the kind of people we want. I have no sympathy for you. None. You used it all up. This is your parent’s fault. Blame them.

They don’t get to block roadways. Simple as that. Break the law, and you get arrested.

Could you imagine Americans illegally living in a foreign country, committing crimes, flouting immigration rules, and then have the audacity to demand the government give into their demands?
