Extremist, open-borders champion Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) was arrested yesterday outside the White House during a pro-amnesty rally against President Trump’s immigration policies.
Gutierrez joined wayward youngsters — dubbed ‘dreamers’ — in a ‘sit-in’ in which they obstructed public byways in protest over what is anticipated to be a reversal by Trump of President Obama’s controversial Deferred Action of Child Arrivals (DACA) executive order which effectively forced ICE to stand-down on processing deportation orders against illegal aliens that arrived in the U.S. as minors.
Gutierrez is by far among the most extreme of his pro-amnesty Democrat colleagues in his defense of sanctuary cities, dissolving the border with Mexico and in his association with the radical La Raza, which is essentially the Hispanic version of Black Lives Matter.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez was arrested outside the White House on Tuesday during a rally demonstrating support for the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
The Illinois Democrat was taking part in a sit-in on the sidewalk outside 1600 Pennslyvania Avenue — organized to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the initiative’s introduction — at the time of his arrest.
“JUST NOW: @RepGutierrez has just been arrested in front of the White House! #DefendDACA,” immigrant advocacy group United We Dream tweeted.
The group also tweeted that about 25 people were taken into custody during the event, which was also held in support of temporary protected status for illegal immigrants.
The DACA and TBS programs are now both in doubt under the Trump administration.
A representative from Gutierrez’s office confirmed the arrest over Twitter, saying he was “still in U.S. Park Police custody.”
This is not the first time Gutierrez has had a run-in with the law for disturbing the peace.
In March, he was arrested for protesting President Trump’s immigration policies at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Chicago.
