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.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
