Talk about being a drama queen.
Illinois congressman Luis Gutierrez is a Democrat who continues to defy President Trump’s stance on illegal immigration. Recently Gutierrez was arrested at an ICE office after refusing to leave the premises, like a mature adult he decided to stay until cops were called to arrest him and remove him. Why? Because he was not happy with the answers he was receiving from the ICE agents.
Rep. Gutierrez was handcuffed at an ICE office in Chicago today because he refused to leave.
Gutierrez, a staunch advocate of immigration reform, was at a meeting between ICE officials and immigration lawyers, activists, community leaders and other elected officials, NBC Chicago reported.
“They were asking about specific cases and about the general conduct of ICE and deportations,” said Gutierrez’s director of communications, Doug Rivlin.
Gutierrez refused to leave the office after the meeting and was briefly handcuffed.
“The congressman has decided that he did not get the answers he was looking for from the ICE regional director and he’s going to be staying inside until he gets answers, even if that means risking arrest,” said Rivlin, according to NBC.
