Just moments after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that President Donald Trump is rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, nine illegal immigrants and three US citizens were arrested near Trump Tower in NYC for sitting in the road and blocking traffic.
Arrests continued outside Trump Tower throughout the afternoon.

The group who organized the protest is now threatening “escalated action” if the illegal immigrants are not released from jail by the afternoon.
“To help defend undocumented youth from ICE retaliation, allies are prepared to participate in a second wave of escalated action if DACA recipients are not released by the afternoon. They will be refusing to leave jail until all nine DACA recipients are released,” Movimiento Cosecha, the group who organized the protest, said in a press release.
Those arrested were sitting in the street and blocking traffic near Trump Tower.

“We are angry for all the young undocumented immigrants that haven’t turned 16 yet and are waiting to apply for DACA. We are angry, for all the DACA parents that could lose the job that supported their family. We are angry, for all the plans that DACA recipients had that now seem impossible. But we are also strong; and no politician- not Trump, not Paxton- can take that away from us. Our strength and resilience have never depended on a work permit,” said Thais Marques, a spokesperson for Movimiento Cosecha.
The group hopes that by disrupting traffic and those needing to go to Trump Tower on Tuesday that they will help to “win permanent protection, dignity, and respect for all 11 million undocumented immigrants.”
Just after 11 a.m., Sessions announced the end of the program, with a six month window for Congress to act.
“The DACA program was implemented in 2012 and essentially provided a legal status for recipients for a renewable two-year term, work authorization and other benefits, including participation in the social security program, to 800,000 mostly adult, illegal aliens,” Sessions said. “This policy was implemented unilaterally to great controversy and legal concern after Congress rejected legislative proposals to extend similar benefits on numerous occasions to this same group of illegal aliens.”
There are currently protests all across the country, including outside the White House and Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC.

Petition to Free Tommy Robinson Reaches 500k Goal
It has reached 500,000 signatures!
A petition to urge British Prime Minister Theresa May to release political prisoner Tommy Robinson has reached its goal of 500,000 signatures.
Robinson, who is most known for founding the English Defense League, was arrested and quickly sentenced to 13 months in prison after attempting to report outside of a courthouse where members of a Muslim grooming gang were on trial. Grooming gangs are an open secret throughout Britain, and are nothing more than child sex trafficking rings.
He was initially arrested for “suspicion of breaching the peace,” but jailed for the completely separate crime of contempt of court.
In Britain, unlike the United States, people can be arrested and held for 48 for suspicion of committing a crime. Oftentimes a person arrested under this practice is jailed for completely separate crimes than the arrest reason.
Following the arrest, there was a temporary reporting ban on the case for British news agencies, and many were forced to remove articles about his arrest. Because of this, more underground movements were crafted to fight back.
One of those mediums was a petition on the website Change.org. The petition is designed to put pressure on the British government to free Robinson.
On top of that, there have been a number of public demonstrations in the streets of Britain demanding his release, as well as in the streets of countries across the world.
Looks like there were a few thousand people outside the Prime minister's front door this weekend unhappy about something…
The media elites are going to do everything in their power to keep Tommy locked up. But the citizens of Britain seem to not be rising up.
Leftists Use Obama-Era Immigration Picture To Attack Trump
It’s a four year old photo.
Anti-Trump pundits, searching for every opportunity to attack the President, have begun circulating pictures taken in 2014 of illegal immigrant children in detention centers, acting as though they were taken while Trump is in office.
The pictures came from an AZcentral article, and have been spread around by high profile social media figures such as Women’s March organizer Linda Sarsour and the white Black Lives Matter leader Shaun King.
While the posts don’t attempt to directly state that they were taken in 2014, when Barack Obama was president, it is highly alluded. That is proven by many of their followers, who directly blame President Trump for what is seen in the pictures.
I saw this photo floating around and didn’t know if it was real.
Children of immigrants are being held in cages, like dogs, at ICE detention centers, sleeping on the floor. It’s an abomination.

While Sarsour and King were more careful with their wording, Jon Favreau, who served as Obama’s speechwriter, stated in a now-deleted Tweet” that what was seen is “happening right now.”
Favreau then Tweeted a justification for the pictures, stating that it was different in 2014 when his former boss was President.
These awful pictures are from 2014, when the government's challenge was reconnecting unaccompanied minors who showed up at the border with family or a safe sponsor.
Today, in 2018, the government is CREATING unaccompanied minors by tearing them away from family at the border. https://t.co/Jgbbnq0djq

It isn’t surprising that Trump is facing fake criticism. Enforcing federal immigration laws is an issue that polls very well. All the flack that the President has been receiving on this issue stems from his willingness to do what he was elected to do.
Pulling up four year old pictures taken during the Obama years seems to be the only tool the left has to counter Trump’s calls for immigration enforcement.
Southern Poverty Law Center: It’s Racist To Call MS-13 Animals
Because of course they said that
The Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) public goal is to fight hate and bigotry and to seek justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. But in reality, much of what they do has nothing to do with meeting that goal, and oftentimes does the opposite.
In a recent Facebook post, the SPLC targeted the White House’s statement which refers to members of the violent criminal gang MS-13 as “animals.” The SPLC called that statement “racist” and “dehumanizing.”
The SPLC may be correct when they state that the language in the statement was “dehumanizing,” but that’s kind of the point. MS-13 is a violent gang that rapes and murders innocent people on a daily basis.
While they weren’t wrong about the dehumanizing part, they completely jump the shark attempting to make the statement racist. There is virtually nobody who opposes MS-13 for the simple reason that it is largely made up of Hispanics. President Donald Trump surely doesn’t oppose them for that reason, as anybody who has read the White House statement understands.
No reasonable human being supports the actions of MS-13, and people have routinely referred to them as “animals” for their vile actions. The reason that the media made a big deal about President Trump saying that is that they are desperate to prove he is a racist. The media is willing to defend MS-13 in order to make the President sound racist.
The SPLC has a long history of vilifying those on the right, oftentimes labeling conservative groups as hate groups, as previously reported here. Their entire goal is to find the right-wing boogeyman, instead of targeting groups like MS-13, who routinely cause more harm than any one of the groups they target do.
