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.

Goodbye 2020: Clinton Ordered By Federal Judge To Submit To Questioning

(TeaParty.org) – Just when Hillary Clinton began hinting that she’s ready to run again in 2020, she has been ordered by a federal judge to submit to questioning about the use of her private email server to convey classified documents during her time as Secretary of State.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan made the order as part of a lawsuit from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q’s about the setting up of her email system,” wrote Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a tweet following the ruling.

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that, following JW's court battle, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer – under oath – two additional questions on her controversial email system within 30 days.

Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions -- including key q's about the setting up of her email system. Court denied our request to unseal vid depositions of Clinton aides. Great work by Michael Bekesha!

As a statement from Judicial Watch explains, the ruling is the latest development in the group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, which they began to discover why former deputy chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton, Huma Abedin, was allowed to work at the State Department while also engaged in “outside employment.”

Clinton now has 30 days to answer two key questions from a list of 25 questions composed by Judicial Watch.

The questions the judge selected are:

1) “Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.”

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

This new development is huge because it means that the two critical scandals from Clinton’s time in the State Department, her private email server and the Benghazi attacks, are facing fresh scrutiny in both the legal system and the court of public opinion.

And while Clinton likely had little chance of any run in 2020, this makes it even less likely she will stand even a shred of a chance.

We’ve have got to hope and pray that at long last, this leads to the long overdue criminal charges we’ve all been waiting to see.
