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.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
