Eight worthless members of Congress were arrested today as they protested at the National Mall in support of amnesty for illegal immigrants. They were arrested and taken into custody by Capitol Police.
Eight members of Congress were arrested during a Tuesday immigration rally on Washington, D.C.’s National Mall.
Several House Democrats sat in the middle of Independence Avenue and blocked rush hour traffic, according to the Star Tribune.
The representatives, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY), Rep. Al Green (D-TX), Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Rep. Jan Schawkowsky (D-IL) and Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), were then arrested by U.S. Capitol Police, spokeswoman Kimberly Schneider confirmed to TheBlaze.
The congressmen were charged with “crowding, obstructing, and incommoding” under D.C. Code 22-1307 and will be processed by the U.S. Capitol Police at 67 K Street, SW.
What needs to happen is the constituents of these despicable representatives need to storm their local offices and flood their e mail boxes and phone lines asking why this rally is more important than figuring out how to compromise on the shut down and the upcoming debt ceiling talks.
I also believe that the arresting of these congress critters was all just a dog and pony show. Nothing will happen…they will just walk out the back door and go back to their offices and have a laugh on us, the people who pay their salaries.
