DENVER -- Two activists on a hunger strike occupied a Colorado campaign office for President Barack Obama on Thursday to demand that he sign an executive order allowing children of illegal immigrants to enroll in college and the military and pursue U.S. citizenship.
Obama campaign staffers were using a back door to access the Denver field office as the protesters occupied a couch. The office was closed to the public.
Veronica Gomez, 24, of Antioch, Calif., and Javier Hernandez, 23, of Denver, vowed to only drink fluids until Obama implements the DREAM Act, which would allow the children of illegal immigrants to enroll in college or the military as a way to eventually establish citizenship or permanent residency in the U.S.
Gomez and Hernandez are illegal immigrants who graduated from college.
"We're not playing games," said Hernandez, a native of Mexico.
Other activists planned similar protests at Obama campaign offices across the country, he said.

I’ll drink a big glass of water to that.
They should give up on the fluids and go for a full on hunger strike. I doubt Barry would sign that executive order in an election year.....but sometimes his stupidity is huge.
This is all VERY impolitic.
Dissent is NOT patriotic when the dissenters are in charge.
Has anyone in formed the Obama Truth Squads Thought Police at Attack Watch about this?
Depends on the definition of fluids. Remeber Cindy Sheehan’s “fast” where she sucked down smoothies with everything from ice cream to protein powder - http://michellemalkin.com/2006/07/11/how-moonbats-fast/
If they're following the Cindy Sheehan fasting/diet program, smoothies with protein powder and ice cream count as fluid-only intake:
Let ‘em starve. It is their choice and actions have consequences. Perhaps that’s the first chance they have ever had to learn that lesson.
Ack! Ya beat me by, like, four minutes.
I think I’ll go drown my sorrows in a milkshake. After all, it’s not food or anything...
I was thinking of some ice cream myself. I’ll let it melt a little.
Yeah, you’re right. Libs are liars.
“Bozo the clown might just be up for it if he thought he could buy some illegal alien votes for Nov 6”
That’s if more states don’t take action behind what Florida is doing.
I say... Show me a sign that says “Fast And Furious Drove Me From My Country” and I’ll show you a VISA
Where do these invaders, think they are ,or wish to take us to? Castro's Cuba or Chavez's Venezuela? At 23 and 24, after already stealing a college education from America, these two believe America is or should be a nation of law by decree of a despot?
Seems that their "dream" is not an American dream or one of any democratic nation. Seems like their idea of "citizenship" is perfectly suited for a leftwing dictatorship and totally antithetical to America.
I can't think of a better argument against a "Dream Act" and for their deportation.
