So, where were all these protestors during the 8 years Obama did nothing on immigration reform? "Dreamers" didn't just suddenly appear with the election of Donald Trump.
.
Are we a nation of laws or a nation of law-breakers? Rule of law, people, RULE OF LAW. Time to enforce the damn law!

They shouldn’t have been arrested. They are above the law.

Seriously, there needs to be a more streamlined process to citizenship.

General mac

No. Being arrested for peaceful protest is not a big deal. I've protested more than a few times--apartheid, darfur etc etc

180 people show up at a NATIONAL demonstration and it makes news? More people than that went to Dixie Café this week! Liberal media making news out of nothing at all...

Packy, your memory is leaving you, huh? Can't remember what the make up of Congress was way back there during the Obama administration, huh? It may be time for the rule of law to have them take your drivers license, if you still have one. The reason being you may well be dangerous to yourself and others driving, that is if your memory is this bad. Think way back Packy, and maybe, just maybe you'll get that Obama signed an executive order, one which many folks like yourself bitched and whined about at the time regarding the DREAMERS.

If they were "peaceful" why did they get arrested? That dog don't hunt.

Hey Timber - You're memory leaving you? Obama said he had a pen and a phone and could handle it all. Obama failed DACA. Miserably failed. Now, ENFORCE THE DAMN LAW.

Dontcallmenames,

That number of people always are protesting. The big march on impeachment is scheduled for January 27th. Unless there is a blizzard, that one should get a crowd.

Impeachment "protest"? I'll bet popmom and rbear will be at the forefront of that!

RBear-
Illegal aliens here for many years.....victims of their parents' defiance of our immigration laws and Congress' failure to address the issue.....assuming they can live like us citizens.....hoping that the laws would change so they wouldn't have to follow the rules and actually apply for citizenship like so many have done .......given false encouragement and a sense of security by Obama's executive order....getting their panties in wad when Trump announced plans to end the program....so they travel to Washington for some lame-o protest.
