Immigration Activists from the pro-amnesty group United We Dream held a rally inside the office buildings of the U.S House of representatives, Friday, to accuse Republican lawmakers of “harsh anti-immigrant rhetoric”- and to tell MRCTV that Congress can act now to pass amnesty because the U.S. border is already secure.
"Obviously, the border is secure," one of the protesters' organizer declared, arguing that illegal aliens are already being captured as soon as they enter the U.S.
The protests come in the wake of thousands of illegal immigrant children crossing the border and being held by border officials in the United States.
The protesters attempted to gain access to the offices of Rep. Darrell Issa(R-CA) and Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). They claimed that their efforts were intended express their frustration over a recent letter sent by Issa to fellow House Republicans calling for an end to Pres. Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DADC) policy. Issa believes that the policy is partially responsible for the recent tide of unaccompanied children across the southern border.
