    Illegal Immigrants Protest Sessions, Cruz, McConnell in Senate Offices

    by Caroline May 18 Nov 2014, 10:26 AM PDT

    More than two dozen immigration activists -- including undocumented immigrants and “DREAMers” -- protested at the offices of Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) Tuesday.

    The protestors were organized by the pro-amnesty group United We Dream, its spokesman Mario Carrillo confirmed to Breitbart News in a phone interview following the protests.

    “United We Dream sees their attacks on the president not so much on the president himself as on the community by trying to prevent him from using his legal authority to protect millions of immigrants,” Carrillo explained as the reason it was protesting McConnell, Cruz, and Sessions.

    “They’re saying if the president can shield them from deportation then [the senators] are obviously suggesting they should be deported,” he added, explaining they wanted to let the senators know “anytime they attack our community we’ll respond in full force.”

    Reports indicate that President Obama could move to take executive action on immigration as early as this week. Republican lawmakers are currently considering ways to block such actions.

    According to the United We Dream spokesman, Tuesday’s protest was a response to opposition to executive amnesty and some of the rhetoric, specifically McConnell’s description of executive amnesty — saying it would be like “waving a red flag in front of a bull.”

    Capitol Police did respond to the protests but, according to Carrillo, there were no arrests in the group. He confirmed the group was made up of “parents who might be able to benefit from whatever the president decides to announce, we have DREAMers, we have undocumented people — just entirely undocumented.”

    Carrillo said the protestors saw Sessions and attempted to confront him, but he did not engage.

    When the Capitol Police requested the protestors leave, Carrillo said they did.

    I am sure the legislators were suitably intimidated by their demands.
