Amnesty activists reportedly crashed and were kicked out of Hillary Clinton’s New York speech on Tuesday, just days after vowing to ramp up pressure on the likely 2016 presidential candidate.
According to Business Insider, “at least six” DREAMers from the United We Dream group, which has staged mock GOP funerals in Congress, started yelling, “Undocumented! Unafraid!”
They were reportedly “escorted from the room by security,” and one of the DREAMers, Mateo Tavares, chanted, “No more deportations.” Tavares, though, would not disclose to Business Insider how the group got their invites to the event, which “was held in a room at the headquarters of the United Federation of Teachers union in Manhattan.”
As Breitbart News noted, Clinton “ducked questions from DREAMers” on immigration in Iowa on Sunday, even awkwardly “giving two thumbs up and saying ‘yay’ to DREAMers who are facing deportation.”
On Monday, Monica Reyes, who yelled questions at Clinton at Sen. Tom Harkin’s (D-IA) Steak Fry, told MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart that DREAMers will increase “pressure on Democrats” like Clinton, because “they made this promise on immigration reform, and we really want to see that happen.”
