Two Democrats in Congress were arrested Tuesday while sitting on the street outside of Trump Tower in Manhattan.
Reps. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., and Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., were on the scene as part of yet another protest against President Trump.
The issue for this event apparently was the president’s plan to discontinue the special protections for illegal aliens provided under Barack Obama’s amnesty program Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
According to the Washington Examiner, the two were among a number of members of Congress there and were arrested outside Trump Tower.
Reps. Raul Grijalva and Luis Guittierrez have also been arrested.
