SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) Dozens of protesters surrounded a bus believed to be filled with immigrants slated for deportation at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office in San Francisco, a protest organizer said Thursday.
The protesters included dozens of undocumented immigrants and immigrants rights advocates who rallied for the expansion of a national movement to pressure President Barack Obama to halt immigrant deportations, according to Jon Rodney, a spokesman for the California Immigrant Policy Center. We are not going to wait for Congress anymore. We are not going to wait for Obama. This is a humanitarian crisis, two million people deported in 5 years, protester Hairo Cortez told KPIX 5.
The protesters blocked what was believed to be a bus carrying immigrants to be deported from the USCIS office at 630 Sansome St., Rodney said.
There are family members, there are mothers, there are fathers, theres children, brothers, sisters that may never see their family members again, said Jen Low of Asian Americans Advancing Justice. The plan is to go nationwide until the deportations stop and until we get deferred action or a pathway to citizenship. Police negotiated with the demonstrators to move away from the bus, which was able to go on its way after a couple of hours. Citing the Sanctuary City policy, no arrests were made and no one was handed over to federal agents.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement had no comment on the protest Thursday night.

My my. How convenient.
Only two million in five years? At that rate it will take from 25 to 75 years (depending on whose figures you use ) to get rid of this cancer on our society.
Are we hell bent on destruction? Seems so.
A million a month, that’s all we ask.
Immigration Law is the Law of the Land.
Some people waste perfectly good kitty litter to get traction on slippery spots. I hear that illegals who protest in front of buses have the potential to increase its traction 3-fold.
Let ‘em have the debt too..
The DOJ will be behind all the coming protests ,Obama needs another crisis and it will be all those poor Illegal Aliens , LOL
I’ll bet that if the bus moved, the people would move.
illegal aliens are lawfully allowed to interfere in official gov business with the police begging and pleading for them to please move.( Police negotiated with the demonstrators to move away from the bus, which was able to go on its way after a couple of hours.)I wonder if the protesters demanded pizza be sent in while they consider the negotiations ?But illegals giving orders to the police.Only in America
Police negotiated with the demonstrators to move away from the bus, which was able to go on its way after a couple of hours.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
ANY negotiation by police with the ILLEGAL demonstrators should have been to call a 2nd bus and let it follow the first one.
Pretty soon the Blacks will figure out what is happening and when they lose ‘priority victim status’ TSWHTF, so to speak.
When those groups start squaring off it will get interesting.
Of course if they band together, WE might just wake up. Black vs Spanish will only get a ‘ho hum’ from the unwashed masses.
The only time someone wants to take action is when it is their ox getting gored.
Be interesting to see who BO will pick to be the ‘whipping boyz’ on his next venture, the public surprised him and started raising hell when he was ‘dissing’ the VETs.
Truckers, Bikers and Vets can/will be a force to be reckoned with if these clowns don’t ‘get it together’.
That was a perfect opportunity to load the bus full before sending it back to the mexican Hell they came from. If they are worried about their families, locate them and send them right behind them.Children belong with their parents.
We are at the tipping point.
