Authorities arrested Linda Sarsour at Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s office Monday while demanding Ryan meet with her and others protesting current inaction on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA) program.
An outspoken Muslim activist, advocate of Sharia law and co-chair of the Women’s March, Sarsour — along with Zahra Billoo and Omar Suleiman, Dawud Walid, Talib Shareef, Nihad Awad and Mujahid Fletcher from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — were arrested for civil disobedience according to MSN.com.
Sarsour and her cohorts sought to speak with Ryan about President Donald Trump ending the renewal of the DACA program.
A group of DREAMers also protested in front of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Monday with the aim of criticizing Democrats for not passing a permanent fix to the DREAM Act. Approximately two dozen activists gathered in the street outside of the DNC before blocking its front doors and refusing to let staffers enter or exit.
