Democrats apparently don’t have anything better to do than sit in the street and protest. Several people were doing just that in front of Trump Tower when the police started making arrests.
At least 10 people were arrested, among them Representative Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), Luis V. Gutiérrez (D-IL), and Raúl M. Grijalva (D-AZ), according to a Gutiérrez spokesman.
Also arrested was New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, who is Puerto Rican and widely considered among New York political observers to be a future mayoral or congressional candidate.
Reportedly they were protesting the DACA repeal. Lawmakers aren’t supposed to break laws, they are supposed to make new ones and uphold the ones we have. If a law needs to be changed, there are clear cut ways to do that. Liberal stunts like this protest just show Democrats trying to get a good photo for their “cause” and not really doing anything about it.
The first Congressman to be put into cuffs was reported by local news KGUN9, “Arizona Congressman Raúl M. Grijalva was arrested in New York this morning in front of Trump Tower.”

Congressmen sitting in the street like children.
This seems to be a trend.

The arrests come a day after dozens of protesters loudly shouted down House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during a San Francisco event designed to call for the immediate passage of the Dream Act, a bill created to permanently grant protections to dreamers.
There has to laws, there has to be rules, or there will be anarchy. These leftists want anyone and everyone to be allowed into our country with no questions asked.
When their precious Obama was in office, no reports of Republican Congressmen picketing the streets occurred, no sit-ins, no protests. Oh, that’s right…they were WORKING.
