“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.

College Republican National Committee Flips Out After School Chapters Join Immigration Moratorium Coalition

The College Republican establishment is not happy about this.

Published

on

The College Republican National Committee (CRNC) is enraged after several university chapters signed onto a letter calling for an end to temporary worker programs in the U.S. due the toll that the coronavirus pandemic has taken on the national economy.

College Republican leaders delivered the letter to the White House last week, urging Trump to put a moratorium on immigration policies that are jeopardizing the demographic integrity of the country.

“[W]e ask you to immediately take action to rescind the work authorization of hundreds of thousands of foreign, nonimmigrant skilled guest workers in order to ease the economic suffering of American college students and recent graduates looking for meaningful employment in these trying times,” the coalition wrote in their letter.

Over 25 College Republican and Young Republican groups signed onto the letter, which demonstrated how the “America First” movement is guiding and influencing conservative youth.

“These guest workers — and especially those in the OPT and H- 1B programs — take jobs temporarily at wages far below the average for their positions. This is because employers can easily pay these guest workers less than they pay Americans,” the letter stated.

“This is not right,” the letter added, calling for the H-1B program to be suspended and the OPT program to be shuttered permanently.

The letter has not come without consequences, as the CRNC has reportedly expressed displeasure with chapters that signed onto the coalition. Big League Politics has reported on how establishment forces within the College Republicans have conducted a witch hunt against Trump-style nationalists, harbored homosexual predators within their ranks, sided with ANTIFA terrorists against pro-Trump students, and committed other atrocious behavior to undermine the conservative cause.

Gavin Wax, a Fox News contributor who serves as President of the New York Young Republican Club, was instrumental in putting together the coalition. He believes that the letter represents the ascending movement within conservatism, and the push-back cannot stop the momentum that has coalesced behind this coalition with Trump in the White House.

“It is great to see young conservative leaders from across the country uniting to promote a common sense proposal to defend the American worker and our national sovereignty. We cannot continue to keep the gates open as working-class Americans struggle to provide for their own families,” Wax told Big League Politics.

“It is a shame that this position has not been readily adopted by more organizations and their national affiliations. We are thankful for the work FAIR and Michelle Malkin have done to advance this issue forward,” he added.

Big League Politics will continue to hold the College Republicans accountable as the establishment desperately tries to fend off the rising “America First” movement.
