Protesters Storm Stage, Disrupt Rep. Luis Gutierrez Speech at Refugee and Immigrant Conference

LUIS-GUTIERREZ-facebookProtesters shouting “liberation not integration” stormed the stage at the National Immigrant Integration Conference on Tuesday, disrupting Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) as he was about to deliver a speech to the gathering, eyewitnesses tell Breitbart News.

As Breitbart News reported previously, the conference is a gathering of refugee and immigrant advocates meeting to plan opposition to the refugee and immigration policies of President-elect Donald Trump.

A spokesperson for the National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA), one of the two hosts of the conference, confirmed that Gutierrez’s remarks were disrupted.

“Congressman Gutierrez gave his remarks as scheduled after a brief demonstration,” the NPNA spokesperson told Breitbart in an emailed statement.

“As you can imagine, some attendees here are scared, worried, angry and stressed. We understand that things like this happen in a democracy, especially in uncertain times like these,” the spokesperson added.

One eyewitness who was present at the conference when the disruption took place offers a more detailed version of the event.

“A group of mostly non-black activists started screaming about black immigrant rights and rushed the stage blocking the speaker [Rep. Gutierrez] with a banner that said ‘What About My Family?,’ ‘Black Immigrants,’ ‘What About Sex Workers, LGBTQ Folk, Muslim Immigrants, Criminalized Immigrants?,’ and ‘Not 1 More Deporation,'” the eyewitness told Breitbart News.

THESE ARE COMMUNIST OPERATIVES WHO INTEND TO TRY TO DESTROY THE FABRIC OF THIS COUNTRY.

It's simple don't break the law !!!

Gee, Robert, why didn't they think of that!  

Makes me sick to see ILLEGALS behave like this and get away with it. They are anarchists out to overthrow our way of life, our rule of law, our government. KICK THEM ALL OUT- they broke our laws by coming here ILLEGALLY - DEPORT THEM - don't break up the families - DEPORT THEM ALL!!!

That's a fact!

We need to release every single illegal immigrant currently in jail to ICE officials, and fly them IMMEDIATELY to their home countries to complete their sentences there.

Just sayin'.

Why fly? How about take them on empty school buses for the "ride home" if it's a contiguous country - but AFTER the wall is built so there is NO RETURN!!!

How bout use them as compost? I bet once the word gets out we have a compost shortage here, ' please come to the US,' how long before they would stop coming? Now that's a real lasting solution. Of course that might get some people overly excited, an yet, that just might be the answer someday?

could not have happened to a nicer guy

He would look far better hung from a rope and letting the crowd use him as a Piñata!

Communist piece of shit, oh I meant democrat!

AGREED!

Sounds good to me.

 Luis Gutierrez is nothing but a rabble rousing seditious traitor. Of the same cloth and Anthony Weiner. NEVER TRUST LIBERALS !

SICK: New Jersey Awarded $3.8 Million In Financial Aid To Illegal Aliens


 A local news report revealed that the state of New Jersey awarded $3.8 million in financial aid to illegal immigrants during the 2018-2019 school year.

According to a report from NJ.com, the state of New Jersey gave $3.8 million in financial aid to 749 illegal immigrant students in the last academic year. More than a quarter of the funding went to 328 illegal immigrants that attend Rutgers University.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed a law last year that allowed illegal immigrants to apply for financial aid. Prior to the signing, illegal immigrants were permitted to apply to pay in-state tuition at public universities but they were not eligible for financial aid.

Murphy, who supports the spending, hit back at Republican critics by arguing that giving financial aid to illegal immigrants is compatible with American values.

“I’d even invite any of those folks who have that attitude, beginning with our president, to come on into this room and allow me or any of us to say, ‘This is the United States of America,’” Murphy said at the time.

David J. Socolow, executive director of the state’s Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, defended the state’s decision to offer financial aid to illegal immigrants.

“This financial assistance offers these New Jersey students a life-changing opportunity,” Socolow said in a brief comment.“The successes of these first 513 students, who are now attending county colleges, state colleges and universities, and independent institutions around the state, will have a positive impact on countless additional lives.”

According to the report, there is currently no limit on the amount of illegal immigrant students that are permitted to receive financial aid from the state of New Jersey. State lawmakers forecast that they will spend approximately $5 million on financial aid for illegal immigrants each year.
