    Anti-Trump immigration policy protest briefly blocks Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade route

    Four people protesting President Trump’s immigration policies staged a sit-down protest and briefly blocked the Thanksgiving Day Parade route before cops removed them Thursday.

    The protesters are young people who came into the country undocumented, but were allowed to stay, according to the Seed Project.

    President Trump ordered the repeal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in September. Attorney General Jeff Sessions in October announced the program would be canceled in March.

    Congress is now considering the measure and debating whether it should be included in a pending budget bill.

    "We want permanent protection for undocumented youth, and more focus on the fact that all undocumented youth are suffering, whether they're DACA or not,” said Piash Ahamed, 26, a college student from Woodbridge, N.J.

    The protesters, dressed in red T-shirts, sat down in the middle of the road on Central Park West at 70th St. and were soon ushered off by police. They were not arrested, spokesman Roberto Juarez said.

    Barbara Hernandez, a 25-year-old early childhood teacher, came all the way from California to participate.

    "It was scary at the beginning. I was scared of being arrested, I was scared of losing my job,” Hernandez said. “But once there, I felt empowered, having them with me, and knowing it wasn't just for me — it was for everyone, not just the Dreamers, but all 11 million."

    Hector Martinez, 26, a Ditmas Park yoga teacher, said the aim was to draw attention to the young and hopeful immigrants.

    "What we're trying to remind people is that they're the ones who shape a Democracy, and it's their voices that shape what the future is.

    "Today was successful in that we were able to remind the immigrant community that they don't have to live in fear.

    "When you work together, you can change the way things are."

    Ahamed said they're planning to protest in Washington, D.C., in December.

    “We want to put pressure on the legislators and the public, and make sure we're not getting lost in this political nightmare,” he said. “We want to make sure our voices are heard.”

    "What we're trying to remind people is that they're the ones who shape a Democracy, and it's their voices that shape what the future is." And they are the ones who will vote to NEVER end illegal immigration with an eternal amnesty offered for every criminal who successfully jumps the border! Get them out of here NOW.

    “We want to put pressure on the legislators and the public, and make sure we're not getting lost in this political nightmare,” he said. “We want to make sure our voices are heard.” This "nightmare" is of your own making, and believe me it's NO picnic for Americans who foot the bills for your entire existence here!

    Illegal Aliens Block Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (VIDEO)




    November 23, 2017

    by Kristinn Taylor




    Four protesters, including illegal alien adults with temporary DACA protection against deportation, briefly blocked the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City Thursday morning.

    Police quickly removed the four red-shirt wearing protesters right after they sat down in the middle of the street. The protesters were detained but not arrested. Supporters on the sidewalk chanted, “Undocumented and unafraid!” in protest of President Donald Trump reversing the unconstitutional DACA program for illegal aliens who entered the U.S. as children enacted by former President Barack Obama after Congress refused to grant them amnesty.




    The protest was organized by the pro-amnesty for illegal aliens group the Seed Project, which posted photos and statements about the protest.


    A Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade marching band, dressed in black and holding a banner, is blocked by illegal alien protesters.


    Toward the end of the video as the protesters are being led away by police, supporters can be heard chanting in Spanish about ‘revolution.’




    A press release was issued about the protest.

    Undocumented Youth and Allies Disrupt New York City’s Macy’s Day Parade while Calling for Permanent Protection for all Young Undocumented Immigrants in the Country


    With their lives in limbo and with congressional inaction, undocumented youth take part in civil disobedience to call on community to take fight to their districts and to Capitol Hill.


    New York, NY – Immigrant youth from across the country converged in New York City on Thanksgiving Day to participate in a civil disobedience action and pledge their commitment to winning permanent protection for Young Undocumented Immigrants in the Country. Four DACA recipients and allies were removed from the parade, blocking traffic by the Macy’s Day Parade.


    On September 5th, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was repealed by President Donald Trump in one of the cruelest attacks on the immigrant community. Starting on March, 5th 2018, 800,000 undocumented youth will begin to lose protection from deportation and their right to work. After years of commitment and sacrifice to gain their education, support and start their families, and become key contributors to their communities politicians are standing by while they will broken apart from their families, livelihood, and community.


    “The White House & establishment politicians are responsible for this decision. They are negotiating away the power and dignity of our immigrant community. The community is being pitted against each other — children against parents” said Catalina Santiago, one of the Undocumented Youth who was arrested at the Macy’s Day Parade. “Their aim is to make undocumented youth bargaining chips for driving our parents and our community deeper into the shadows”


    “Undocumented youth are refusing to put our destiny in the hands of establishment politicians. We are choosing to fight for the dignity of our entire immigrant community, and that begins with us. We are your classmates, your coworkers, and your neighbors” said Hector-Jario Martinez, one of the Undocumented Youth who was arrested at the Macy’s Day Parade. “We are not just the future of this country, but we are also the present workers that it depends on. We are millions of young undocumented students and workers who are the backbones of our schools, industries, and communities. We are calling on our community members to stand up and fight for our right to work and live in this country.”
