    Protesters in support of a clean Dream Act are arrested in the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, Nov. 9, 2017. more +


    Hundreds of protesters gathered inside the Hart Senate Building Thursday morning chanting "Dream Act now...Dream Act now" in hopes of persuading members of Congress to act on the fate of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    Add Immigration as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Immigration news, video, and analysis from ABC News.


    U.S. Capitol Police said 15 protesters were arrested.

    Protesters were holding banners to pressure Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, to pass legislation in support of so-called Dreamers. The banners were seen hanging on the upper floors of the Hart Senate Building.

    Thousands of Dreamers could lose protection as DACA deadline arrives

    The Trump administration announced in September it was terminating the DACA program, which allowed children who were brought to the U.S. illegally to remain in the country and be eligible for work permits if they meet certain requirements.


    The program was implemented under the Obama administration.


    Twenty GOP House members also urged Ryan to act on immigration legislation that could protect the nearly 800,000 Dreamers.

    The lawmakers said efforts to grant such deportation protection can easily pass the House if GOP members joined Democrats to back any immigration bill.


    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she does not intend to have Democrats leave for the year without a Dreamer bill set in stone.


    "I have to see what the spending bill is, I fully intend we will not leave here without the Dream Act passed," Pelosi said.

    Not near enough.
    Jeremiah 29:11 - It is written, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

    McConnell needs to be FIRED and so does his wife Elaine Chao

    Put THEM both out of a job like they are doing to American citizens with their push for amnesty and open borders!

    That border is open for them both to head South and off our soil...adios you traitors!
