Lawmakers arrested at Amnesty Rally

Anyone have more on this??
Mass arrests are also taking place now at the rally, with at least 100 people arrested so far, reports Pam Constable. The crowd is cheering as protesters sit in the streets. Capitol Police have taken away Rep. Luis Gutierrez, Rep. John Lewis and Rep. Charlie Rangel as well as Gustavo Torres, executive director of CASA de Maryland. The scene is orderly, with the crowd cheering as each person is arrested, Constable reports.

The rally took place after

The rally took place after the six-time Grammy winners Los Tigres del Norte performed at the National Mall during a show in which the Mexican band dedicated each song to the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally.

A staged event in America?

A staged event in America?

NEVER!

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

So it was a hoax, wasn't it?

Anyone have any updates on this 'event?'

9-11 was a panda job.

It's a publicity stunt

The whole charade stunk from the beginning when the police arrived.

Lewis Gutierrez has been arrested multiple times at "Pro-Amnesty" rallies, and then released an hour later for show.

arrested for...

Buzzfeed says they were there in support of the rally protesting with the illegals & were arrested for blocking traffic during a sit-in.So yes,I would say it was a staged publicity stunt to draw support from stupid people who don't know any better.

Not very many people showed up ar rally, need a smokescreen

so they purposely got arrested.

Smallest rally ever

I'm not voting on this thread until I see some proof.

Trying to find some right now.

(edit) National Journal is reporting on it now. Seems like some kind of gimmick:

If it's Gutierrez

He must have been paid to do it.

Ditto, Gutierrez has done

Ditto, Gutierrez has done this trick hundreds of times.

I saw a chart a couple years ago

Where Gutierrezs' income increased more than anyone else in the House.

Just saw this tweet:

The whole immigration rally today was staged. Staged arrests, staged sympathy, staged public servants.

I imagine the Reps were there in support of the rally

and got arrested. Or went there to deliberately be arrested as a fake-out to cover for Obama, to make it look like he didn't really "let the rally happen" as has been reported and disputed.

I doubt they were arrested for treason or anything like they should be. Lol
