It's no secret that Democrats approve of disruption as long as it's in the name of progressive causes. This explains their silence on Antifa violence and refusal to defend free speech. Once again, this was all too apparent when three Democratic congressmen were arrested outside of Trump Tower during a Pro-Dream Act rally.

U.S. Representatives Luis Gutierrez of Illinois, Adriano Espaillat of New York, and Raul Grijalva of Arizona were all detained by police for blocking a public street and refusing to move when ordered to do so by police. The protest was also unlawful as the group did not have a permit to rally.

The demonstration came two weeks after President Trump's plan to wind down the DACA program. The Commander-in-Chief, though, may do an about face and provide a pathway to citizenship for the roughly 800,000 Dreamers brought to the country as children.

Even so, this doesn't matter to the most fervent progressives, who will always paint the President as Hitler incarnate who wants to send frightened Mexican children to labor camps.

The three congressmen sat down in the middle of Fifth Street Avenue, impeding traffic and the lives of Americans who actually need to work for a living. With the disruption, even ambulances and other emergency vehicles were unable to pass.

The actions of these three congressmen are disappointing but not really all that surprising. It's the leftist MO to put illegal immigrants before American citizens in order to maintain power by gaining a huge swath of voting block.

Of course, progressives will hail these three as heroes and martyrs that are "down with the cause." The rest of America, though, is getting tired of this political posturing. Yet Democrats still wonder why they lost in 2016 (no, it's not because of those darn Russians) and will probably lose again in the midterms and in 2020.
