DREAMer Confronts Loretta Sanchez on Deportations, Loretta Walks Away (VIDEO)

Thumbnail image for Loretta Sanchez DOD .jpg
Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez has probably had her fill of DREAMer activism for the week--and it shows! On Monday, a trio of OC DREAM Team activists staged a sit-in protest at her D.C. office until they were arrested by U.S. Capitol police.

After that bad look, a Dream Action Coalition member squared off with a clearly unnerved Congresswoman Sanchez at a rally.

According to our sources, everything was going fine for Sanchez until Erika Andiola--whose story has received national attention--called her out alongside several people whose loved ones are in detention and deportation proceedings. That's when things got a little testy.

Congresswoman Sanchez rushed to Andiola as she spoke through a microphone about the sit-in protest. Hurried, the lawmaker said she had places to go, but the activist refused to give up the mic asking her about the arrests of OC DREAMers and if she would support a new hunger strike that began outside the White House against deportations. Sanchez desperately reached for the mic twice before Andiola finished.

Once someone gave the congresswoman a mic of her own, she ripped into the DREAMers. "These young people decided they wanted to go to jail," Sanchez said, referring to the undocumented activists arrested at her office. She emphasized the notion by emphatically pointing to the ground numerous times.

"Will you ask for their release?" another woman asked. Sanchez responded saying she would but that they're already in the system. With that, she high tailed it out of the tent mid-sentence after dropping the mic!

As for the Orange County DREAM Team that's gotten under her skin? They put out another statement in response to the lawmaker. "We are disappointed that Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez continues to see immigration reform and publicly pushing the President to take action on deportations as two unrelated issues," the group says. "In fact the two are not separate. The path to immigration reform begins with a stop to deportations and an expansion of Deferred Action for all. We came to her office to ask her to lead on the issue and still would like her to do so."

"We hope that she realizes this and speaks up before President Obama deports another two million people."

Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez acted appropriately when confronted by the so-called "Dreamers," who presented themselves like a typical bunch of "mob rule" thugs.


Furthermore, the real path to immigration reform begins with a serious enforcement of U.S. immigration laws, which includes non-stop deportations of illegal aliens and an expansion of the budgets for immigration law enforcement agencies. 


I hope that Ms. Sanchez realizes this and encourages President Obama to increase the law enforcement funding necessary to deport the more than 20 million illegal aliens still occupying U.S territory in flagrant violation of the rule of law.  


After all, if our political governors refuse to respect the rule of law concept, then why should anyone else respect our laws.  Ergo, let the anarchy begin?

They break the law, they go to jail.  Pretty simple.  It is OUR LAW - created and approved BY US.  So sorry if you don't like it.  Thank you representatives and Police for enforcing OUR LAWS.

@jimgilchrist   Yes why don't you deport the cheap labor that this country has built into it's economy over the last fifty years so you can completely destroy the United States.

Mr Obama has deported more people over the last 7 years then the last three GOP presidents combined and what has it done?  Nothing but destroy families and slow down the economy,  just think if your Republican sugar daddies had been for a real living wage in this country those precious jobs you think illegal immigrants have "stolen" from "real" Americans would have been filled by "real" Americans because they would actually be able to pay for the modern day cost of living.  Make them illegal and keep them desperate so they will do any job and they will keep their mouths shut, you are a servant of your corporate slave masters.  Keep them slaves right Jim?  More scraps for you!!!

@armandocdll81 Yes we should take out all that working illegal force of immigrants out of the US. And see what would you do as an American to at least survive with a low wage salary. Kick all those petulant mexicans, central and south americans. Burn them if you want. Exterminate them. Hang them. But first change your petulant mexican name.

@cempa_ @armandocdll81  Your suggestions are vile and despicable.  Chill out and come back with a credible argument,not a loony rant.
