The left seems to think that whoever screams the loudest, and ignores the most facts are right in the immigration debate. Today on Capitol Hill they continued with that strategy, screaming “we care!” while holding “abolish ICE” flyers.

It is unclear who was leading the midday protest, but one must assume they are largely jobless millennials.
This protest was running in tandem with a number of nationwide protests, including in New York and Portland, Oregon. The Portland protest caused an ICE facility to close for multiple days. Federal riot police began arresting protesters today in the hopes of being able to re-open the facility in the next few days.
While there are mixed demands, the one overlying theme is a demand to stop enforcing federal immigration law. President Donald Trump has already stopped separating families at the border, yet these protests continue, citing the now-rescinded policy. It is clear that their goal is simply to open up the border to anybody who wants to cross illegally.
But the American people clearly don’t support these protests. President Trump’s approval rating has only climbed despite the left’s hysteria. His approval rating has even climbed 10 points among Hispanic voters.
Update: 4:42 PM EST
Rep. Pramila Jayapal has been arrested at the protest. Prior to her arrest she was posting about the event on her official Twitter.

Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June
They’re infiltrating the borders again.
Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.
Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.”
Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.
Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.
State of emergency ‘expulsion’ powers afforded to CBP allows the agency to return most illegal aliens across the border within two hours.
