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.

Countrymen it could get lot worse. What if Mexico partners with China and we are staring across the border at China's artillery, tanks and liberation army. Things are going to change fast. Look up China Cuba and Mexico negotiate oil drilling in the gulf and 45miles from Florida where US interest is prohibited from drilling. We are in treacherous times but we are Americans and we will survive.

God Bless America and the State of Israel

YOU'RE NOT ALONE.

Many patriots have said that the invasion of ilegals was just the beginning of a war that will take place in North America. Wondering if they could hide short range missiles on oil rigs 45 miles off our coast?

The great obama's new buddy in Cuba had also made an oil deal with the Chinese; allowing them to drill off the coast of Florida closer to the coast than US oil companies were allowed to drill.
Not to mention the 113 oil leases that the obama regime didn't allow to be renewed by U.S. companies. A voter ploy to appease the environuts and make us even more dependent on muslim countries as well as backdoor funding of terrorist groups like ISIS. 

Every policy, immigration, trade, military reductions, race relations, energy, etc. etc.,
Obama has deliberately put financial strain on America to colapse her. Obama is either a complete lunatic or a treasonous bastard of the highest order and Congress is equally to blame for not stopping this ars hole. I personally believe our Govt is part of a international crime syndicate. I hope and pray that I am correct in saying that Trump will go after these thieving bastards with a vengeance. If not the worst will occur, there will be civil war and nobody in their right mind would want something that terrible. This administration has so much money missing its absolutely mind blowing. Thank God he gave us the Constitution of the United States of America through our founding fathers, for we can not speak this way anywhere else in the world. "Heavenly Father, thank you for America and give aid to your servants to deal with those who abused the trust that was given them in this great nation." If all God's people will pray for God's justice it will happen. I like many are very angry that we have for a time stopped the Communist in their tracks, Please, excuse my language at times does not reflect my faith but this is righteous indignation. If I didn't truly believe this were so I would simply go fishing and forget this total insanity we have witnessed from this past 8 years.

God Bless America and the State of Israel

GOD has given US four (4) years to get America Great Again

After the 4 years God willing He will give US another 4 years & after that VP Pence may run for The Presidency  - - God willing & We The People keep voting as WE did on Nov. 8, 2016

It looks as if the "COMMUNISTS are FIGHTING ONE ANOTHER" so that their particular MINORITY GROUP is given # 1 Slot as far as "IMPORTANCE" goes !!!!

It sounds as if the "BLACK LIVES MATTER" Group is pissed off because the Hispanics are running the show, with "Gutierrez" La RAZA Rhetoric taking all the time slots !!!!

Hahahahah!!!! Let 'em go at each other's throats like good COMMUNISTS do and maybe we can watch them all kill each other off !!!!!

Sure is funny how growing up before we had all these different cultures coming into the US pushing there way on us we didnt have all these problems.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
