The fight for our national security at our borders is vital and the dems and libs desire “open borders” which places our nation at an extreme risk. The fight for our nation is not just up to the President and congress, it is up to We The People as well.
The dems and libs that organize these protests do so simply to use propaganda of fear and the propaganda is directed at those who buy into the fear. RWT News
That’s when Philadelphia police and Homeland Security officers began telling protesters they could no longer block ICE’s garage doors.
Protesters wouldn’t budge and began locking arms in front of the doors to continue the effort of stopping any agency vehicles from transporting undocumented immigrants.
Police say there were around 75 protesters blocking the entrance to the ICE building, while refusing to allow anyone to enter or leave. Police say after several warnings, 29 arrests were made. They were issued failure to disperse citations and quickly released. Two people sustained minor scrapes and bruises during the arrests, as one was taken to the hospital. CBS Philly Local News
