U.S. Rep. Ellison arrested during immigration rally

U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison was arrested Tuesday by U.S. Capitol Police during an immigration rally on the National Mall.

As protestors marched toward the U.S. Capitol, Ellison and several other House Democrats sat in the middle of Independence Avenue, blocking rush hour traffic.

Police led Ellison away in cuffs shortly after 4 p.m.

Ellison’s office said the move was an act of “civil disobedience” designed to urge Congress to pass legislation that would allow the nation’s undocumented immigrants to apply for U.S. citizenship.

The march was held on the National Mall even though the open-area park is closed due to the federal government shutdown.

They didn't arrest the invaders who were occupying OUR mall?

Occupying the HOR dems looks like a stunt to divert attention from the treatment of veterans at their memorials.

Clown show in support of lawlessness.

They will get a slap on the wrist and pay a small fine from their ample salaries and return to screaming about terrorist tea partiers within hours.

Nothing dumber than a Democrat. I’ve known dogs and cats who were smarter than any Democrat.Any immigrant can apply for citizenship, legally that is. My daughter-in-law from Canada did. It’s when you get cute and break in to the country that the problems start. So f’ing sick and tired of Mexicans acting as if somehow the rest of us born here in the US are somehow sitting in their living room and they shouldn’t have to obey any immigration laws or any laws for that matter.

Senior citizens ignoring barrycades to enter parks and memorials are “breaking the law.” Scum ignoring immigration laws are practicing “civil disobedience.”

Oh brother.......the drama of it all. Is there anything a democrat will not do for attention and votes? Just what were they protesting? Their immigrant constituents legal or not were standing there, openly welcomed and allowed to rally. It’s not like they were denied anything. LOL

That is the driver for much of what the left does, especially the college kids. They want so much to feel like they fought "injustice" that they will manufacture things to be "righteously indignant" about. Gay marriage, nonexistent discrimination, Saint Trayvon... They've never seen real injustice so they make it up. I'd like to see them try to illegally immigrate to and vote in Mexico.

Glad to see that some law enforcement officers - especially US Capitol Police, who interact with congresscritters every day - have the guts to arrest a bunch if Dummycrat bigwigs breaking the law just to draw attention to themselves and their anarchist immigration ideology which they call "reform."

The fact that these 'Rats are out in the streets promoting their amnesty idiocy instead of attending to much more pressing matters like Obamacare, the budget, the debt limit, etc. speaks volumes as to how radical and insane they are.

BTW, did Cong. John Lewis claim that the arresting officers shouted some racial slurs at him?

Come on...

Why would they resist arrest when they went down there specifically to be arrested for the cameras?

Do you not get these people are campaigning for the illegal vote, and for support from the pro-illegal types?

Do you not see others cheering them on?

Gezzzz

Too bad this was all just a charade.

The Congress “men” probably called the police before and chatted about how they would be arrested, etc.
