The political climate in this country has gotten out of hand in the wake of President Trump. Protests have been widespread — and violent — but now they are including America’s very own elected Congressmen. How far is too far?

A sit-in at Manhattan’s Trump Tower was organized on Tuesday, which included a number of lawmakers at the federal and state levels. The event ended with several arrests, including that of Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Washington Examiner reported. He was one of three Democrat Congressmen arrested.

The sit-in took place after President Trump gave a 40-minute speech at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday morning. He was expected to stay at Trump Tower afterward, however, he was not present at the time of the protest.

The purpose of the protest was to demand Congress pass Dream Act legislation to protect immigrants affected by Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the Obama-era order which Trump recently ended.

Other notable attendees in the protest were Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), and Democrat Speaker for the New York City Council, Melissa Mark-Viverito. Both Grijalva and Mark-Viverito were arrested, but Espaillat was not.

“We are here to defend our immigrant communities,” Mark-Viverito stated before her arrest, according to NY Daily News. She was photographed while placed in plastic handcuffs and loaded into a law enforcement bus with other arrested protesters.

According to Time, the protest organizers planned on being arrested at the event. When they refused to remove from the sidewalk — which obstructed public property — their wishes of arrest were fulfilled.

The New York Police department announced, “Since you have refused to leave the roadway, you will be placed under arrest on the charge of disorderly conduct.” Upon the group’s failure to comply, they were arrested.

Gutierrez has a history of political demonstrations — and arrests for them. In August, he was among an estimated 30 protesters arrested during a sit-in on the White House sidewalk that both commemorated the fifth anniversary of DACA and protested its ending. He was also arrested in 2010 and 2011 for the same act of protest — a sit-in style protest before the White House against the deportation of illegal immigrants.

The group justified their protest as appropriate pressure against the Trump administration and Congress to defend thousands of immigrants, deemed “Dreamers.” At the same time, they opposed expanded border security measures and the border wall, which they believe put immigrants’ safety in jeopardy.

In a statement made following his arrest, Gutierrez claimed, “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… today we are standing with diverse allies to make sure Congress and the President do more than just talk about solutions, they actually follow through with action.”

These Leftist politicians continue to make a mockery out of themselves. Their arrests don’t yield change; it only damages their credibility. Immigration appears to be the only issue they’re willing to protest for, which is stunning considering other serious issues, such as the widespread violence of Antifa or the staggering statistics of unemployment. Perhaps Americans will be more willing to listen if these Democrats decide to protest something that affects everyday Americans.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Tom Fitton: Trump Was Victimized, Targeted by FBI,
Clinton Campaign, Russian Operatives, Obama Admin
and Fusion GPS

Judicial Watch founder and President Tom Fitton hammered the corrupt Mueller investigation on FOX and Friends Weekend on Saturday morning. Tom blasted the corrupt Obama Justice Department and declared the Trump-Russia collusion investigation over after Friday’s sham announcement of the indictment of 13 Russians.

Tom Fitton calls out the corrupt Justice Department on their criminal activity against candidate and President Trump.

Tom Fitton: At the end we have the massive Russia investigation that finds no collusion with the Trump Campaign. I don’t understand why we are still talking about a Special Counsel investigating the president in light of this indictment… Look those who say the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians are going to have to start providing evidence other than the Clinton-DNC dossier. Look this was in the news this week. We had the Susan Rice memo indicting Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Sally Yates, James Comey and Susan Rice in a conspiracy to get Trump on Russia. You had information that the number four at the Obama Justice Department, Bruce Ohr, hid information on his relationship with the Clinton Campaign cash machine – basically Fusion GPS that was collaborating with the Russia to launch dirt or really defamatory dirt against President Trump into the FBI-DOJ apparatus. And now you have this indictment of Russians abroad, an indictment that’s never going to see the light of day in short of trial because they’re never going to come here. It’s never going to be tried. We’re never going to find out whether anything in the indictment’s true. And what would they rather be talking about? This indictment where they found, despite all the king’s horses and all the king’s men, not one American colluded with the Russians.

Why isn’t this Justice Department looking into the abuse of the FISA process? Look the Russians were trying to make it clear to the Clinton Camp that they had dirt on Trump and they were going to use it against him. And all of that was false. And Trump was victimized and the FBI, rather than trying to protect him, used it as a pretext working with the Clinton campaign to target him under the corrupt Obama administration. Look this indictment shows the Russian scandal is over as far as Trump is concerned.

 

Obama is center of anti-@RealDonaldTrump effort -- when will he be questioned on the Clinton-DNC dossier? And, do what do we have the FBI for -- the shooter screw-up? New Lawsuits on Unmasking, the DNC Hack and Comey DOC. My @JudicialWatch update. https://youtu.be/h0WB08SHmuQ
