BREAKING: Congressman Gutierrez Handcuffed At ICE Office – Do You LOVE It?

Written by K. Walker on March 13, 2017

This Democrat Congressman wanted answers, dammit!

Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois is a pro-immigration advocate.

Legal, illegal — who cares!

If people want to come to America, let them, says Gutierrez, who has indicated an Open Border stance.

Rep. Gutierrez was handcuffed at an ICE office in Chicago today because he refused to leave.

He felt he didn’t get the answers he needed, so he risked arrest to get them.

Gutierrez, a staunch advocate of immigration reform, was at a meeting between ICE officials and immigration lawyers, activists, community leaders and other elected officials, NBC Chicago reported.

“They were asking about specific cases and about the general conduct of ICE and deportations,” said Gutierrez’s director of communications, Doug Rivlin.

Gutierrez refused to leave the office after the meeting and was briefly handcuffed.

“The congressman has decided that he did not get the answers he was looking for from the ICE regional director and he’s going to be staying inside until he gets answers, even if that means risking arrest,” said Rivlin, according to NBC.

In a tweet after his release, Gutierrez said he did not know if he was going to be formally arrested over the incident.

This Congressman must’ve been just a peach to deal with.

ICE officers must just loooooove this guy.

Gutierrez tweeted the whole thing:

This isn’t the first time — or even the second — that Gutierrez has been arrested for protesting.

The previous arrest was in July 2011, protesting deportation of illegal aliens.

(I’m sensing a theme here…)

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) was arrested Tuesday outside the White House, during a protest against immigrant deportation, a spokesman confirmed.

Gutierrez spokesman Douglas Rivlin said the congressman was arrested with other pro-immigration advocates after a Lafayette Square rally to protest deportations.

Sgt. David Schlosser, U.S. public information officer for the D.C. Park Police, said 11 people were arrested for “violating regulations for demonstrations in front of the White House,” and for “disobeying an official to come in compliance,” but would not confirm that Gutierrez was among those detained.

According to Rivlin, the protesters were arrested after they sat down in front of the White House fence and refused orders by park police to leave.
At press time those arrested had not yet been identified by police…

Gutierrez also was arrested in May 2010 during a similar protest outside the White House gates. He had announced that he would not move until he was arrested or until comprehensive immigration reform had become law. He paid a $100 fine afterward, Rivlin said.

Rep. Gutierrez, Obama isn’t the president anymore.

Illegal Immigration is a serious issue and Americans care about it.

A Congressman who doesn’t respect the law is not worth re-electing.

Americans do take notice of these things.

And, as we saw in November, Americans will make their voices heard at the voting booth.

Don’t think that your Democrat seat is safe.

Share if you think that it was pretty awesome that ICE handcuffed this dufus
