Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) was handcuffed and escorted out of the Immigration and Customs Office in Chicago on Monday after he refused to leave when asked.

Gutierrez, who advocates for a number of changes to immigration law in the united States attended a meeting between ICE and immigration lawyers, activists, community leaders and other elected representatives, according to NBC Chicago.

“They were asking about specific cases and about the general conduct of ICE and deportations,” said Doug Rivlin, Gutierrez’s director of communications.
Here are a series of tweets from Rep. Gutierrez of what took place.

This coming from a man who is a part of a political party that is for murdering babies, endorsing sodomy and the redefinition of marriage, tossing God out of its political platform and supporting criminals such as Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah and Hillary Clinton.  Hello pot? This is kettle.

This is actually funny coming from a man that supports the beheading, dismemberment, murder and subsequent selling of body parts of the most innocent among us, babies in their mother’s womb.  While Trump has said he will deal with the issue of illegal aliens in the US, he has also stated the issue of children is a more difficult one.

“The congressman has decided that he did not get the answers he was looking for from the ICE regional director and he’s going to be staying inside until he gets answers, even if that means risking arrest,” said Mr. Rivlin.
Rivlin later issued a statement:
“There has been no dialogue, no transparency, no consultation, and no accountability – just like every other aspect of how this White House does business. It is heavy-handed government in secret all to make the new strongman President look tough and to satisfy the cravings of his coliseum audience for some immigrants to sacrifice.”
Seven others who attended the meeting also refused to leave.
The Hill reports:
ICE spokeswoman Gail Montenegro told The Hill that police took action after Gutierrez made demands of ICE that officials were unable to agree to and then refused to leave the premises.
“However, when the Congressman sought actions and assurances that ICE officials couldn’t provide, he and other meeting attendees staged a sit-in and refused to leave the ERO office at the conclusion of the meeting,” Montenegro said.
Montenegro said officials asked Federal Protective Services (FPS) to remove Gutierrez and the protesters, but later relented on that request.
“[T]hey were briefly placed in flexible plastic restraints before ICE officials relayed that they no longer wanted the individuals removed from the building,” Montenegro said.
She added the protesters had not been cited.
“The Congressman and other individuals were placed in the restraints for approximately two minutes before the flex cuffs were removed by FPS. FPS did not cite these individuals,” she said.
One thing is for sure, Congressman Gutierrez is consistent.  In 2011, he was arrested outside the White House for protesting the Obama administration’s deportations.
While I’m not a fan of Rep. Gutierrez, I do believe the right to free speech and protest government is a right that is to be protected under the law.  However, once one is asked to leave the meeting, and they remain, they are then trespassing.
