Illegal Immigrants Stage Sit-In in Capitol Offices, Protest Democrats

8 April 2014 / 12 Comments

Three illegal immigrants were arrested Monday after they conducted a sit-in at the offices of two Democratic House members, according to activist groups that organized the protest.

As of late afternoon, the immigrants who were protesting in Rep. Loretta Sanchez’s office had been arrested, but three others who were in Rep. Xavier Becerra’s office had not been arrested, according to Luis Serrano, with the California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance.

The protests and arrests mark an escalation of immigration rights activists. Without a legalization bill from Congress, they are asking Democrats on Capitol Hill to pressure President Obama to take unilateral action.

“Becerra, stop helping Obama to deport our community,” one of the protesters said in a video from the office before the group started chanting, in unison, “Not one more!”

In addition to the sit-ins, activists are staging a continuous vigil outside the White House, conducting a two-day fast on the Mall and demonstrating outside congressional district offices in an attempt to pressure both sides of the debate.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
