Many illegal aliens and open border activists blocked an intersection near the White House, demanding that Biden give them amnesty to remain in the United States.
The open-borders organization Movimiento Cosecha and a couple of dozen activists sat near a security checkpoint near the complex of the White House, reportedly delaying Biden’s motorcade.
“We are not afraid,” the self-described “comrades” sang. “We will live for liberation because we know why we were made.”
Spanish chants are demanding “permanent protection for all 11 million” illegal aliens living in the U.S.
The agitators announced they were no longer satisfied with the “crumbs” from the Biden administration, which has included preventing about 9-in-10 deportations through a series of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) orders.
“The current legislation the Democrats are pushing only focuses on a small portion of undocumented immigrants,” group organizer Hector Morales said.
“Even though I would qualify under the current Dream and Promise Act, I am risking arrest today to tell President Biden that I won’t accept piecemeal bills that exclude and criminalize my own community members,” he added.
“I won’t accept these crumbs. We need permanent protection for all.”
Democrat’s “empty promises” were denounced by a protester, and “allies” were thanked for risking arrest.
“Biden originally committed to a pathway to citizenship for all 11 million undocumented immigrants,” organizer Gema Lowe said.
Lowe has been living illegally in Michigan for almost 30 years, Movimiento Cosecha said.
“Now he is ready to pursue a ‘piecemeal’ strategy instead that would exclude me and millions of others who have lived in this country for decades. We deserve better,” she declared.
“That is why today I am willing to risk arrest, detention, and deportation to demand papers, not crumbs.”
The protest was a precursor to a large one scheduled for May Day.
