A pro immigration reform rally was underway Tuesday on the National Mall despite the fact that national memorials have been closed during the government shutdown.
The development comes in the wake of outrage over the fact that several groups of World War II veterans had to resort to breaking down barriers to gain access to the monument built in their honor.
It wasn't immediately clear why the rally was allowed to be held during the shutdown but David Bossie of conservative non-profit group Citizens United speculated that it was being claimed as a "First Amendment issue."
The park police told Camerota in an email that their officers are "at full capacity during the shutdown to protect life and property.”
