Illegal aliens are upset by Congress’s failure to pass at least an extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy — so much so that a group of DACA recipients camped out in front of the DNC early Monday morning with bullhorns and signs criticizing Democrats.
But a throng of 200 illegals who proudly boasted having “no papers” and “no fear” went the DREAMers one better by descending on the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices in Newark, N.J. the same day to demand protections from deportation.
If noting else you have to admire the chutzpah in daring ICE to do its job and arrest them. But the story gets even more outrageous. According to NJ.com, the marchers had a police escort!
The marchers drew mostly cheers and honking horns of support as they walked about a mile from the campus of Rutgers-Newark to the ICE offices in the federal building. The protesters, who had a Newark police escort, briefly stopped traffic as they marched back and forth across Broad Street.
Granted, there is a divide between states and the federal government on how to handle the problem of uncontrolled illegal immigration. This divide is especially prominent in California, where one mayor recently tipped off illegals that ICE was planning a raid and now faces potential prosecution for aiding and abetting.
But when a local police force starts providing protection for illegals against the federal government, they are inviting chaos.
