It’s almost as if these Democrats don’t believe in upholding the law.
Two City Council members were among nearly a dozen people arrested Thursday morning in lower Manhattan while protesting the detention of an immigrant rights activist who’s battling deportation, a council staffer said.
Council members Jumaane Williams (D-Brooklyn) and Ydanis Rodriguez (D-Manhattan) were busted while blocking an ambulance holding Ravi Ragbir on Broadway near City Hall, said Sebastian Maguire, an aide to Councilman Daniel Dromm (D-Queens).
Williams breathlessly said, “Freedom. Resist. Freedom. Resist. We are going to resist,” while a cop held him face down on the hood of a gray car, according to video posted on Twitter by BuzzFeed News.
Oh, you’re with “The Resistance”? That’s nice.
It’s not as if they’re protecting some poor child smuggled here by illegal parents, the guy is a criminal who should have long ago been deported.
An immigrant from Trinidad, Ragbir was ordered deported in 2006 for committing wire fraud, but reportedly has remained in the US by repeatedly obtaining a “stay of removal” pending appeal of his conviction.
Twelve years later and he’s treated as as some civil rights icon. Here’s video of these thugs in action:
