So Much for Taking an Oath to Defend the Law

Rep. Gutierrez arrested outside of White House in immigration protest

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) was arrested outside the White House on Saturday during a May Day protest for immigration reform.

Guiterrez had been speaking to a crowd of hundreds at Lafayette Square when he announced that he was going to go to the White House fence with other protesters, sit down, and not move until he was arrested or until comprehensive immigration reform was signed.
I assume Guiterrez wasn't speaking to the crowd about the Pinal County deputy who was gunned down in Arizona yesterday afternoon by an illegal immigrant with an AK-47?  No, Guiterrez doesn't concern himself with our citizens or the brave members of law enforcement who risk their lives to protect Guiterrez's "subjects." 

Nothing in The Hill's post indicates that Guiterrez was actually thrown in a jail cell.  After all, that is for the little people.  I doubt that Guiterrez will pay at all for his "brave" act of disobedience.  But for those in Arizona and other states with high concentrations of illegals they pay every day for Washington's inaction.  Too often, they pay with their lives.

Ridiculous, and I'm sure he's some sort of "hero" for martyring himself like that. What an idiot (well, actually, I guess he knows he can't go wrong with the "victim" thing). Can you imagine what would happen if Michelle Bachman were arrested at a Tea Party rally? Geesh!

Whenever a Lefty isn't defending the law, he's defending a Higher Law.
If you were not such a bitter, clingy Righty, this would be clearer to you. ;)
